'Halo', Trinity Square, Gateshead
'Halo', Trinity Square, Gateshead
'Halo', a sculpture by Steve Newby (2014) is said to be the largest stainless steel sculpture of its kind in the world. It was made using a technique called inflating and took 36 hours to fix into its position in Trinity Square. 'Halo' is made up of 330 separate sections pieced together by a specialist team at Impressive Welding, at Ryton Industrial Estate.

Artist Steve, from Gateshead, is a pioneer of the use of inflated steel in art, and says the process he used was not unlike blowing glass, as inflating transforms the metal into billowing shapes. He now runs 'Full Blown Metals' from a studio in The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle, and has been working on the 'Halo' project since 2008.
