MADE expert panel member Emma Larkinson has been supporting The Crown Estate to commission a new art work for the heart of Worcester.

Our joint aim was to create a new landmark to contribute to placemaking in the city. We recruited artist Kathryn Hodgkinson who is known for her ability to build a sense of place in her work.

Confluence is positioned on a prominent city-centre building where several streets meet, with people crossing paths with each other. It features a gathering of birds, both common and exotic in recognition of the designs created by Royal Worcester Porcelain, with a sky mirror to reflect the many historic buildings in Broad Street and CrownGate Shopping Centre.
