Curlicue, William Pye
A ‘curlicue’ is a decorative curl or twist used in design or calligraphy, but its form here is reminiscent of heavy duty dock machinery, similar to the anchors littered along this stretch of the Thames. The only big difference is its incredibly shiny, almost mirrored, appearance.
There’s also an inscription of ISLEF but I’ve unfortunately not been able to find what that stands for, any suggestions would be appreciated!
Find it for yourself in Helsinki Square, near Greenland Dock.
