Sea Beams by Donald Urquhart is a grouping of nine 350x350mm square section oak beams varying in height from 7 – 9 meters above ground level. Each beam was cut from a single tree sourced from a sustainable source in Perthshire and dressed to the specified dimensions in Fife. The varying colours of the beams are derived from photographs of the Firth of Forth taken under different light conditions. The photographs were taken by local residents. Sea Beams sits in a new public space comprising a crushed marble ground plane, oak furniture, Scottish beach pebbles and coastal planting.
