This giant vase draws its inspiration from the legacy of the Industrial Revolution in the valley. The classical shape of the vase reflects local architecture. It was built in sections which were then bolted together to look like a machine. Allington, an internationally renowned Sculptor, was selected from over 30 entrants to design a new artwork for the site of the old market in Ramsbottom. The 'Tilted Vase' originally had water flowing out of it.
