A show­case for city’s cre­ativ­ity

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

THE MADE in Sh­effield art ex­hi­bi­tion will show­case the city re­gion’s cre­ativ­ity, in­no­va­tion and man­u­fac­tur­ing skills, ac­cord­ing to a lead­ing in­dus­tri­al­ist.

Charles Turner, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of blade maker Durham Du­plex, said some man­u­fac­tured goods are so well made they can be seen as art.

He told The York­shire Post: “In a ma­chine, you can­not see a pump im­peller. When you bring it out, it can be a piece of art, it can be beau­ti­ful. Th­ese things are pleas­ing to the eye.”

Mr Turner brushed off sug­ges­tions that Bri­tish man­u­fac­tur­ing is strug­gling. He ad­mit­ted that there are some ex­ter­nal pres­sures, but pointed to the strong man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor in and around Sh­effield.

“It’s a mas­sive man­u­fac­tur­ing place,” he added.

The Made in Sh­effield ex­hi­bi­tion takes place at the Mil­len­nium Gallery from July to Jan­uary 2017.
