Reed Vessel


In the rain again ! you can see the drop of the rain in my photo. And this is one of 29 public sculptures in Dockland called " Reed Vessel " by New Zealand artist, Virginia King is a woven and elevated vessel form supported on a cradle 4.5 metres above a pool of water integrated with the wetlands of the 3-hectare Docklands Park, and embracing the themes of migration, survival and the sea. The cradle is sandblasted with poets and writers and also reference marine archeology and once abundant foods that aboriginal people harvested from this tidal wetland.


The sculpture is fabricated from stainless steel work and appears to emerge from the water, a symbol of the rekindled spirit at the docks.

Reed Vessel located in Docklands Park Cnr Bourke Street & Harbour Esplanade since 2002
