ASF has cast sculptures of cormorants, mallards, puffins and magpies as part of the 'Tern Project', a series of artworks commissioned by Lancaster City Council.
Morecambe’s seafront is over 5 miles (8 km) in length and since 1990 the original sea walls and promenades had been battered and breached by severe storms.
The landward side, composed of hotels, guest houses, private dwellings, shops and seaside entertainment, had been damaged by floods, and new defences were due to be constructed.
As part of the 'Tern Project', a series of artworks were commissioned by Lancaster City Council for the seafront area, including cast birdlife sculptures to decorate a seafront post and rail system.
ASF cast sculptures of cormorants, mallards, puffins and magpies as stylish and highly decorative finials.
The bird sculptures improve and enhance the Morecambe Bay environment by making the link between a civil engineering programme, the public realm and the birdlife of the local area.
