A showcase for city’s creativity
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.
