The Flowering of the Lort Burn – Tom Grimsey 2005

The Flowering of the Lort Burn - Tom Grimsey 2005

The work is a direct response to the Lort Burn that flows beneath Leazes Park and through the lake. The work consists of a stream made from blue terazzo and planting. Stainless steel flowers are set into the paths where to mark where the burn flows. A playful splash-pool, situated at the top of the park suggests the source of the Lort Burn.
