SWS UK is celebrating their British manufacturing heritage by taking part in this year’s Art in Manufacturing art commissioning programme. During a four-month residency at the Lancashire manufacturer, renowned artist SAPIEN / AKA Steven Anwar has created Wave Sweeper – a new steel sculpture inspired by the contrast of the company’s industrial doors and rural setting close to the River Lune.
