Originally commissioned by Clerkenwell Design Week for St John’s Gate, this striking sculpture was inspired by the design of the Elizabethan ruff, with the folded facets of the piece recalling the pleated forms of the distinctive historical garment.

The Headrow (previously known as Head Row) has been in existence since medieval times and was the main east-west route through the town as it developed and progressed, making The Light a fitting location to display the work in Leeds.
