Ouch!

After an unfortunate driving incident, The Sunflower sculpture created by Ironart and situated at the bottom of Bathwick Hill in Bath was damaged by a direct hit during the Christmas break. Fortunately, the driver was ok but sadly the level of damage means that it is beyond economical repair.

Very early last Sunday, to avoid the weekend traffic, the dismantling team assembled on the roundabout at the bottom of Bathwick Hill, Bath to remove the damaged Sunflower. Even though it was sad to see The Sunflower come down in these circumstances, the process of taking it apart went well and within two hours The Sunflower and it’s 4 large concrete counterweights had all been removed successfully. A few residents assembled to watch the process and were sad to see it go too. See images below of the process.

We are currently in negotiations with Bath and North East Somerset Council as to whether we will rebuild it for a potential new home in the city. Watch this space…
