Museum Sheffield’s collection represents artists from Sheffield and their longstanding tradition to work with stainless steel. Its designated Metalwork Collection currently holds over 700 steel pieces, the majority being traditional examples of cutlery and flatware. Counsell’s Wapenmap, Damflask, Dale Dike & Strines forms an engaging contemporary counterpoint to these more functional items, showing how this versatile material is being explored in new and diverse ways by the city’s artists. The acquisition also includes related design drawings and research support material that will form an intrinsic part of the displays, celebrating the legacy of the discovery of stainless steel in Sheffield.
