George Wyllie Locomotive Train and Finnieston Cran Statement NecklaceBonnie Bling
Absolute class. Our original Finnieston Cran (Crane) necklace features a gold acrylic homage to internationally celebrated, Scottish artist, George Wyllie’s infamous 78 foot long ‘Straw Locomotive’ that hung from the crane in the 80’s.
The exhibit came to a fiery end when George brought the train down and set it on fire as a symbol of the decline in industry on the Clyde.
A truly special piece and part of a commissioned collection, we were honoured to work on, with The George Wyllie Foundation and The Beacon Arts Centre.
The crane measures approx 12 cm wide x 8 cm high and is attached to an 18'' gold colour plate chain. Wylie's locomotive train sculpture is depicted in reflective gold mirror and carefully suspended onto our lasercut, recycled acrylic, plastic design.
