Thor, a proposed public art piece for Thurcroft, South Yorkshire.

This proposal is for a large ‘Thurcroft Troll’ developed with children and young people in and around Thurcroft, South Yorkshire. The sculpture is to be constructed, cut and assembled from mild steel then, powdercoated and hand painted.

Dimensions: Maximum Length: 4000mm, Maximum Height: 1600mm

Material: Constructed from 3mm Mild Steel and painted with marine grade paint.

The sculpture will be bolt mounted in concrete and set with resin.

It is intended that the piece is installed without a plynth and will be set in a planting scheme of wild flowers.

The sculpture is to be located on a grassed area in a newly planted wildflower meadow in the village of Thurcroft and will be a fun and playful addition to the area.
