Cut from the Factory Floor is a nod to the history of the Templeton Carpet Factory in Glasgow. It is a 3.5m high sculpture from corten steel plate that has been water jet cut with a pattern and then skilfully rolled and formed to appear like a rolled up carpet. The artist worked with original patterns used in the factory, and this takes on a special quality when lit internally at night.
