Thrush Hour was originally a design for a commemorative sculpture for a community arts worker Johnny had worked with on many occasions but the local council thought it too radical, so he made it as part of Beastly Machines
Amanda and Johnny had been talking about making a piece with this title for a couple of years when getting an Arts Council Grant to produce the Beastly Machines touring exhibition gave them a perfect opportunity.
