Kenneth Wybert Hawley, tool collector and historian, born 29 June 1927; died 15 August 2014

 

I wanted to make draw your attention to the Guardian Obituary for Ken Hawley, who passed away in August 2014 aged 87 –

“Ken Hawley, who has died aged 87, was one of Sheffield’s foremost industrial historians, a former tool salesman whose inquiring mind, formidable drive and eye for an opportunity led him to assemble a collection of international importance. The Hawley Collection, comprising more than 70,000 tools from Sheffield together with complementary material from elsewhere in Britain and around the world, includes 2,000 joiner’s planes, 1,000 table knives, 260 micrometers, 50 anvils, 4,000 catalogues and thousands of associated documents. Having been housed for many years in a large shed in Ken’s garden, it now has its own permanent display space in the city’s Kelham Island Museum, and is widely recognised as one of the best places to learn about tools and tool-making anywhere in the world”. The Guardian

I met Ken whilst researching my commission for Sheffield Hallam University  & had a very memorable day spent searching through the archives and collection with him bringing all manner of objects to me. His enthusiasm and passion were very much evident, as was that of the team of volunteers who assisted and managed the collection with him.

I made my last visit there on 18th June 2013 – but didn’t write up the experience until May 6th 2014 as I had only then started this blog.

This was my post from that time – with a couple of images –

I was keen from the outset to explore a site-specific response to the project brief. With that in mind I have been researching the many collections and archives housed by Sheffield Museums and Libraries. I am particularly drawn to the history and manufacture of cutlery in the city. Individuals such as Ken Hawley & the wonderful Hawley Collection at Kelham Island Museum, have made enormous efforts to preserve this legacy.

His keen focus upon the tools of manufacture draw you inexplicably to those individuals directly involved in the process of making & the evidence of the hand crafted & extraordinary skills upon which the wealth of the city was based.

‘Heart of the Campus’ – Sheffield Hallam University

My colleague Jenni Muston at Rockpanel,  has sent me some wonderful new images taken of the ‘Heart of the Campus’ facade artwork by the photographer Jason Newsome.

He has really managed to get some brilliant shots in varying light, which show off the variations in surface quality and light reflection. Thanks to both!

Heart of the Campus, Sheffield Hallam University

Some new images have been issued by GRAHAM who delivered the Heart of the Campus project for Sheffield Hallam University Collegiate Campus.

The West Elevation artwork has a great impact on the building facade.

‘Heart of the Campus’, Sheffield Hallam University – Phase 2 Manifestations

Wednesday 1st October 2014

Yesterday the university client approved the Phase 2 artworks for the glazing artwork manifestations at the new ‘Heart of the Campus’ building for Sheffield Hallam University, Collegiate Campus.

The project was delivered by Graham Construction and HLM Architects.

The digitally printed glazing manifestation artworks will be manufactured and installed by VGL.

‘Heart of the Campus’, Sheffield Hallam University, Collegiate Campus

Tuesday, August 2nd 2014 – Collegiate Crescent, Sheffield Hallam University. Today I attended on site to review the Phase 1 glazing manifestation artwork installations for myself and meet with VGL who were on site to view the works in tandem with the main contractor, Graham Construction. I was also meeting with the University Clients to review the final scope for the Phase 2 installation of artwork. The building now appears to be semi open for use – but still going through various procedures and protocols, I suppose to ensure all goes smoothly once the mass of students arrive later this month! Great not to have to gear up with PPE. The building is looking amazing. Graham & HLM have done a wonderful job. External landscape is almost completed. The East Elevation of the building has an amazing aspect. It was a clear blue-sky day with lots of sun, which are good conditions for looking at the manifestations, as they are more likely to cast great shadows, which add considerably to the impact and variation within the works.

The West Elevation rain screen is really quite reflective in strong sun. Athough this is a painted grey finish, it is glossy and can appear metallic. The exposed Rockpanel material beneath the colour coat has now really darkened from the earlier yellow colour. The surface is more subtle, but richer in appearance. The impact is muted from afar, but the details really begin to emergeon the approach.

The Western Entrance off Broomgrove Road is now almost completed. Some final touches to the landscaping will see this completed. As you pass through the entrance doors, the interior quickly opens out onto the central atrium, which is spectacular. The glazing manifestation artwork can be clearly seen.

The central atrium space as seen from Level 1

This is the three storey central atrium space and ‘Heart of the Campus’. The client had originally commissioned artwork manifestations to much of the visible glazing, but on reflection, the transparency and legibility of the interior spaces & architectural form may have been compromised and it was decided to omit them from the project.  The artwork manifestations to the ground floor exterior curtain wall glazing, linking the East and North entrances, is still being commissioned as the Phase 2 works.

Shadows cast by the artwork manifestation add another dimension to the work and come and go with the sun.

In bright sunlight, shadows are cast form the manifestation to carry across structural elements such as glazing screen frames and supporting columns. This interplay extends the range and impact of the artwork.

The East Elevation Main Entrance doors are automatic and the manifestations cross and overlap as the doors open, creating yet another pattern.
