The Cutting Edge Sculpture in Sheaf Square, Sheffield. The Cutting Edge Sculpture Sheffield design team, Si Applied, and international glass artist Keiko Mukaide collaborated in the development of the sculpture. The sculpture is 90 metres long, and 5 metres high at the highest point. The stainless steel was provided by Outokumpu of Brightside Sheffield, and the structure was manufactured by Jordans of Bristol. The external material is 4mm thick, with a mirror polish on one side of the sculpture and a matt/ satin finish on the other. The sculpture was constructed in eight pieces over a six month period, it was delivered to the site in four deliveries. The materials required to make the external structure weigh approximately 29 tonnes, and the internal frame probably weighs as much. Therefore the whole sculpture weighs approximately 60 tonnes.
