An Age, An Instant

Gate and cladding for New Burlington Mews, Regent Street

Bronze, Portland stone

Commissioned by The Crown Estate, 2014

Architect: AHMM, Art consultant: Philomena Davidson

This work is inspired by the heritage of the Regent Street area. In the early 20th century when John Nash's Regent Street facade was rebuilt, the area was a hub for clock and watch makers. The commission takes inspiration from engravings on turn of the century pocket watches and offers a link to the past through a contemporary expression of mechanical time-keeping.
