The Bridge

Leonardo Da Vinci was a polymath. He used his genius to connect necessity with utility, beauty with desire. His simple bridge design consists of interlocking poles, which rely on gravity for stability. It can be made by anyone from simple components to cross an obstacle. Bridges can connect, avoid and inspire - they are a very human means of removing barriers. Eight Sheffield Artists were invited to think about bridges in the execution of their own very disparate practises.

They are:

Neal Heppleston - Luthier

Giles Grover - Laser Artist

Krishna Alegeswaran - Ceramics

Frances Lewis - Print

Rachel Durance - Fine Art

Jen Ricketts - Silversmith

Mark Evans - Painter

Henk Littlewood - Wood
