1. Simon Watkinson’s ‘Parallel Plotter’, Poole Quay
Installed in 2002 on Poole Visitors’ Quay as part of the Sea Defence scheme
Embedded in the Visitor’s Quay, the Parallel Plotter is a means of plotting a vessel’s
course and would have been a key navigational aid historically. Its site on the Quay
also reflects the railway line that used to run nearby. The Borough of Poole
commissioned the artwork as part of the Quay enhancements. The sculpture was
installed in 2002 and, funded by the Environment Agency the commission fee was
£10,000.

2. Whirling Mandala – by Greg Johns
Installed 2006 at Tescos Petrol Station, Waterloo Road BH17 7JX
This artwork was purchased from a sculpture park by Tesco for installation on the
site and in settlement of their public art contribution of £15,000 for developing the
supermarket on Waterloo Road. This was written into a Planning Condition for the
site. The sculpture is not site specific and from the information available, it seems
that the artist takes his inspiration for his work largely from the Australian landscape.

3. Peter Yarwood’s Tattooed Sculpture, Cabot Lane.
Installed in 2007 at the corner of Broadstone Way and Cabot Lane BH17 7AE
The brief for this sculptural screen was developed to help screen the car park of a
number of retail units from the nearby road to the north of the site. It adds an
interesting aspect to the corner and the artist worked with staff from the Local History
Centre in Poole in order to inform his work. This collaboration resulted in the
traditional sea fairing images tattooed on the screens, which are revealed as a car’s
headlights sweeps across the artwork at night. The commission fee for this work was
£15,000 as part of a Planning Condition in relation to the build of the retail units.

4. ‘Sailing By’ by Hamish Horsley
Installed in 2007 at Shapwick Road
Straddling the pedestrian and cycle path, this series of Purbeck stone sculptures
echoes the form of the yachts’ sails and masts in the harbour beyond. The sculpture
was commissioned by housing developers Taylor Woodrow, in response to a
Planning Condition, for £75,000 and was unveiled by Poole’s Mayor in 2007.

7. ‘Ribs’ by David Annand
Installed in 2008 at Aqua Housing Development, Holes Bay Road BH15 1LS
This bronze figurative dancer echoes the tilt of the abstract steel ribs of a boat, which
appears as if resting on the bed of the nearby harbour at low tide. The artwork was
commissioned from David by Linden Homes for £50,000 as a Public Art contribution
for the site, through a Section 106 Agreement. The Mayor unveiled the sculpture in
2008.

8. Andy Hazell’s Boomerang, Tower Park
Installed in 2008 on a pedestrian access path at Tower Park, Poole BH12 4NY
The artist took a playful approach to the design of this sculpture, which was selected
from a number of possible designs put forward. The boomerang suggests the idea of
‘returning’ yet also provides an informal, directional ’arrow’ into the entertainments
complex for people leaving the car park and looking for a way in. The artwork was
produced by welding two sheets of steel together and then inserting air into the
cavity, at a very high pressure. The commission fee was a £10,000 S106 developer
contribution in relation to refurbishment work at Tower Park.

Installed in 2009 at Corfe House, Seldown Bridge BH15 1ED
Model Living is a lighting-artwork for each of the 2 entrance canopies of this student

10, Lighting Artwork by Jeremy Lord
Installed in 2009 at 288 House, Mannings Heath BH12 4FE

installation which enhanced the windows of the building’s second floor. Etched
perspex sheets are hung in each window and uplit with LED lighting, which move
slowly through a colour spectrum and illuminate the perspex and the surrounding
window reveal. This commission was provided via a £30,000 developer contribution
through a Section 106 Agreement and was installed and opened by the Mayor in

13. Simon Watkinson’s Chine, Penn Hill.
Installed in 2009 as part of Transportation’s Capital Programmes road improvements
scheme in this area of Poole.
This sculpture has blue lighting strips set within it which switch on automatically after
at dusk. The plan view of the artwork represents the street plan of the local area,
from the Penn Hill Avenue junction up North Lodge and Archway Road, and linked
by Bournemouth Road. The sculpture is correctly oriented in its location and on the
east to west trajectory, which represents the railway line, the artwork rises from the
pavement level to form an elevated plinth of a metre high. The artist’s concept for the
form of the artwork arose from his research into the chines of the area and the idea
of information being carried downhill to settle on lower ground. The cost of design
and installation for this design and a further intervention by the artist at the top of
North Lodge was £25,000, which was funded from a Local Transport Plan
Government Grant for road improvement works.

14. Simon Watkinson’s Trading Posts, Old Orchard
Installed in 2009 as part of environmental enhancements of this area of Poole High
Street BH15 1BT
The extended vertical bands, highlighted with blue light after dark, are derived from
the original plot sizes of the houses and shops formerly on the site. There is a
processional quality to this space beneath the trees, encouraging people to move
through it. Old Orchard has always been a social space, and the provision of an
informal performance area encourages this to continue. The artist’s design fee for
this artwork was £15,000, which was funded from a S106 developer’s contribution
related to the refurbishment of the adjacent Old Orchard housing development.

17. Zoe Cull (Stoneform) – Commemorative Artwork, Poole Crematorium.
The Borough of Poole Leisure Services Unit commissioned this installation following
a £20,000 donation from Poole resident Mr. Charles Dook (deceased), who
requested that the money be spent on an artwork for the Crematorium, which
commemorates deceased children of the Borough. The contemplative space is
carved from local stone, and incorporates children’s footprints taking a journey
through the central space before appearing to disappear, and a stanza from an
Arthur O’Shaughnessy poem around a central undulating pool. The benches are
carved with waterfall detailing between seat and base and lavender is planted
around the perimeter of the space. A Mayoral opening took place on 25th Oct. 2011.

18. Rob Olins - Conservative Club & Knightstone Housing, Wimborne Road.
Cresta Homes contributed £20,000 through their S106 with the Borough of Poole for
the purpose of public art. The commission was carried out by architectural sculptor
Rob Olins, who worked closely local people and subsequently, with Poole Pottery to
research the traditional glaze colours used in their historic designs. Rob
commissioned Poole Pottery to produce 350 glazed tiles in the agreed colours,
which have been installed to depict an abstract sunset, curling around the curved
ground floor wall of the Conservative Club. It can be best viewed when travelling
from north to south on Wimborne Road. The same colours were used by Rob to
produce abstract laminates, which have been installed on each floor of the glazed
curtain wall of the apartment block’s stairwell. The combination of the two
interventions creates a unity between the very different styles of architecture used in
the development.
This list is not exhaustive but features artworks which have been commissioned since 2002, by

19. Lubna Chowdhary - Commemorative Ceramics Artwork at Poole Museum.
As part of BoP’s celebration around the completion and opening of the Twin Sails
bridge in Poole, a £4,000 ceramics commission was funded by Regional
Development Agency (the Regional Infrastructure Funding loan), the Department for
Transport, the Department of Communities and Local Government (the Regional
Growth Fund) and developers (s106 agreements). Lubna Chowdhary was
commissioned to produce the work and worked from her own observation to create
an abstracted representation of the waters of Poole Harbour in the foreground, with
the Twin Sails Bridge straddling the channel between the land masses of Hamworthy
and Poole Town. A further depiction of Poole Harbour is seen in the background,
with the distant Purbeck Hills beyond. Lubna has used glazes in a palette
recognisable from Poole Pottery’s design heritage, and incorporating the
‘overglazing’ technique used by the Pottery in much of its panel production work. The
panel is installed in the courtyard of Poole Museum.
20. Andrew Fleming – Photography Commission Twin Sails Bridge Approach.
Gallaghers Ltd. Funded this £6,000 commission for a local artist to produce twodimensional work for installation along the stretch of hoarding around their
