Tippler Bridge

2009

The sculpture was fabricated from a recycled "Tippler" that was used to unload peat from incoming carriages at Ferbane power plant. The Tippler is wrapped in galvanised steel and the long narrow horizontal openings are made from tubular stainless steel. The installation was inspired by the Nissen huts used in the 1940's and 1950's, which housed Bord na Mona workers during the peat harvest in Boora.
