Vandal Resistant Cast Iron

Premier Castings were approached by Argentinian artist Marcella Livingston to cast a memorial sculpture. The sculpture, which is a sunflower sphere, was for a Memorial Garden in Beswick, Manchester and in memory of two teenage girls who were killed in a road traffic accident.

Marcella supplied us with a wax model from which we made a mould. We then cast the sphere. The sphere and base plate were manufactured in Spheroidal Graphite – this material is a ductile
iron and resistent to vandal attacks (ie, will withstand heavy shock loading). The coloured leaves on the base of the sphere are messages from former classmates and friends. For more information about Marcella Livingston, please visit her web site by clicking here.
