Prospect Oval Entry Statement
Alchemy Ironworks (and City of Prospect)
About the artist
City of Prospect has worked in collaboration with Clayton Church Homes to create a welcoming space which provides for better community access and landscaping to this entrance to Prospect Oval from Main North Road.
It gives a sense of arrival, creating a beautiful archway designed by City of Prospect's landscape architecture team and constructed by metalwork company Alchemy Ironworks. It was inspired by the Art Nouveau style and is reminiscent of signage found in the Patis Metro. The design, with its vibrant coloured glass, aligns with fencing and gates located nearby at the nearby Memorial Gardens play space.
City of Prospect's Arts and Events Team, along with the Infrastructure Team, often combine standard civil works with imaginative designs, and use this as a platform to increase creative installations and public art throughout the community. This installation is a result of partnerships between both teams, and the artistic input and excellence of Alchemy Ironworks.
The company humbly began as Deco European and Contemporary style furniture in 1991, trading for six years. Then in 1997, after a flash of inspiration and relocation to Kent Town, Alchemy Ironworks was created.
Alchemy Ironworks is an incredibly innovative, imaginative and diverse metal design studio.
