Irwell Sculpture Trail, James and his Ball of Fire
Irwell Sculpture Trail, James and his Ball of Fire
This giant stainless steel origami-style dinosaur is one of three public artworks which were unveiled at Close Park in Radcliffe during November 2006. It takes its inspiration from the former paper making industry in Radcliffe. The reflective materials respond to different light and weather conditions.

The sculptures, part of the Irwell Sculpture Trail, are the result of a joint project between artist Mark Jalland and pupils of Radcliffe Hall Primary School. When designing the sculptures, the artist was inspired by the ideas generated by the children through a series of interactive workshops and Radcliffe's former paper-making and fabrication industries.
