Sculpted Steel Poetry

Sculpted Steel Poetry

Client: Creative Northland & Whangarei District Council

In 2015 Culham Engineering was contracted by Creative Northland and the Whangarei District Council to construct and install a 2.4m x 1.2m piece of weathering steel, rolled, blasted and laser cut for the Whangarei Sculpture Walkway on the Hatea Loop in Whangarei.


The water in the town basin
Pitching the moon and tall tales
Of sail and anchor
A young girl dreams her departure
In hushslushing tide
And the liplapping waves-
Parihaka at her back
And the river in her bones.
