Amesbury Wheels, Commissioned Work



Amesbury Historic Wheels Relief – "Carriages to Automobile"
Public Sculpture, Commissioned by The Amesbury Cultural Council, Amesbury, MA

Jeff was commissioned to create a sculpture that expressed a significant era of the town’s history. In a forty year span between the Victorian and Industrial eras, Amesbury craftsmen were technology leaders in the transition from carriage to automobile. This relief depicts 5 wheels, from wagon wheels to automobile wheels, all produced in Amesbury. The bronze relief, measuring 12' 6-1/4" wide x 43" high x 3" deep, is installed in a small park at the entrance of the new Transportation Center in Amesbury.
