|The Tin Mans head was made of concrete in Coffee Hall workshop by three artists Liz Leyh, Lesley Bonner and Michael Grabowski. No-one can quite remember how this heavy concrete head was removed from Coffee Hall to the final site in Beanhill.
The Tin Mans body was firstly sculpted in concrete, then a body made by a blacksmith Gerry Bowyer at Stacey Hill studio, was wrapped around him to give a metal outer body.
The siting of the Tin Man was chosen by architect Dave Newman.
