Today we welcomed over 100 guests to the launch of our public art at 10 New Burlington Street. Pictured is Rona Smith (alongside project director Max Shand), a young sculptor with a rising international reputation who has created intricate bronze gates at the mews entrance to our development with the Crown Estate at 10 New Burlington Street.
Rona Smith is an artist working primarily in sculpture and installation. For New Burlington Mews she has responded to her research into the history of the Regent Street area which was a hub for watch makers in the early 20th century when the façade was rebuilt. The commission takes inspiration from engravings on turn of the century pocket watches and offers a link to the past through a contemporary expression of mechanical time-keeping.
