‘Tree of the Forge’ Timbertree Academy
An exciting commission which sees the celebration of the school becoming an academy reflected in sculptural form.
This 5 metre tall and 20 metre broad 3 dimensional steel Oak Tree represents the growth and evolution of the Timber tree Academy. All 400 pupils have stamped the stainless steel leaves which adorn the life sized blacksmithed Oak tree which grows around the entrance to the new academy.
The tree links the area’s industrial past to its contemporary status and hopes for a growing future.
