Shakespeare has supplied the Architectural Industry for decades, supplying bespoke sculptures for local and nationally acclaimed artists and designers such as Andrew McKeown, Ralf Sander and Antony Gormley. Some examples of Shakespeare's vast experience in the sector are shown below.
In February 2015, Shakespeare was engaged to manufacture an innovative cast iron sculpture named "The Wanderer", designed by Ralf Sander. In July 2015, the two 3.2m tall, 6 tonne cast iron sculptures took a prominent position in the beautiful park of Drogheda, adjacent to the footbridge, some 55km north of Dublin.
The Wanderer comprised of two seperate cast parts which, when arranged in a certain manner, create a changing viewing experience depending on where a person stands. The unveiling ceremony was attended by a number of local people and dignitaries to the delight of Ralf, who expressed his gratitude to everyone at Shakespeare for manufacturing the sculptures.
The Shakespeare sculptures are an interesting "inverted version" of Ralfs best known Lady-Bird Transformation(mirage) works; a public sculpture for Busan Cinema Center in South Korea, commissioned in 2011 and erected in August 2012. © Copyright Ralf Sanders. All Rights Reserved
