In South Shields, Fleet by Irene Brown is a collection of stainless steel collier ships in full sail set in the water of Market Dock, overlooking the Tyne. The brightly polished ships reflect patterns of both moving sky and water and give the impression of a fleet heading out to sea. The work is part of the Art on the Riverside programme and this piece reflects South Tyneside's maritime heritage and coastal setting.( description from )
