Description"The Blacksmith's Needle is a slim cone-shaped tower of open metal-work sited on the Newcastle Quayside on the walkway in front of contemporaneous office buildings and opposite the Baltic Flour Mills on the opposite bank of the Tyne. The sculpture was created in 1998. It has a multitude of hand-forged iron and steel objects welded all over the frame. Most of the items have a predominately maritime theme, so the sculpture fits in with the overall concept for the quayside area. The 'Needle' comprises of six layers, each layer with objects relating to the senses including what was describes as 'the mysterious sixth sense'.
