Cabot Circus > Roche

Susanna Heron working in collaboration with Stanton Williams has developed a unique work of art that takes the form of a series of organic drawings etched into glass panels to make a shallow relief which encourages contrasts between light and shadow play. Comprising 18 massive glass panels individually sand-blasted and acid-etched by hand, the spectacular window is made up of 12 glass panels each measuring 2.5m by 4.8m, with a further six panels each measuring 1.7m by 4.8m.

At street level, a 35 metre by seven metre cast bronze artwork has been integrated into the Portland fossil stone facade of the department store. Running the full length of the building facade on Bond Street South, these individually cast bronze panels feature a unique textured surface, similar to molten lava. Continuing the themes of marine fossils, reflection and shadow-play the Artist has milled a series of recessed forms as smooth flat planes into the organic surface of the bronze.
