About the HeART

This design is inspired by Lincoln’s engineering and industry, which the city is renowned for.

In Lincoln the very first tank in the world was produced, by William Fosters & Co during World War I. In the same period Lincoln had the largest aircraft production by Ruston Proctor and Co, and in the 1950s gas turbine development was pioneered by Robert Feilden of Ruston & Hornsby.

Precious Metal is the beating heart of the city’s engineering sector!

About the Artist - Kevin Baumber

Kevin is a Royal Colle of Art trained artist based in Lincolnshire. He specialises in making large scale steel sculptures of animals under the name of Welderbeasts.

The creatures are first modelled in 3D on a computer, cut from sheet steel and welded together to reconstruct the original computer model in the physical world.
