Still Point
Still Point
Still Point - a new work of art by Susanna Heron, who was given the opportunity to create it adjacent to the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King in Liverpool. Architects Hogben & Hale worked with the artist to realise this work which is located within the newly landscaped garden in the lea of the Cathedral near the main entrance. The site enables a range of views, both from above and via a descending path. Like a pool of water the work is sited at the lowest level of the garden. A circular stone platform, 17.5 metres in diameter, is constructed from large stones of hammered grey and smooth black Indian granite. The flat surface is cut to an organic circular drawing which originated as a small charcoal drawing on paper taking the centre as its meditative focus. The black stone is water jet cut into the grey stone. 72 no. 350mm thick Karin grey edge blocks form the circumference of the piece enclosing thinner slabs. The stone is supported by a reinforced concrete raft that rests on the ground. The architects and artist worked closely with stone mason, William Taylor Masonry, to develop the piece.
