Boll transition - church st

The five magnificent ‘transitions’ sculptures commissioned from Yorkshire artist Ian Randall represent a celebration of Blackburn’s social, economic, industrial and physical growth as a town. Each of the separate forms represents a stage of growth and evolution in the town since the arrival of cotton.

The first stage in the transition is Boll, the seed, and relates to the cotton boll. The unfolding bronze petal suggests an awakening of the industrial revolution and the organic nature of Blackburn’s physical growth. The surface of Boll has a stylized map relief, which is indicative of the early hand drawn maps of the borough. The water is symbolic of the Lancashire’s damp environment, which was critical to the development of the cotton textile production in the area.

Award winning project cost £250k.
