Help find a home for Making Waves

Earlier this year, Council moved fast to take up the opportunity to purchase a work by the late Bert Flugelman, one of Australia’s most celebrated public sculptors. It wanted to commemorate the connection he had with our area, as he lived for many years on Jamberoo Mountain, regularly swimming at Kiama beaches at a time when he was named as one of our One Hundred Living National Treasures.

The purchased sculpture Making Waves is approximately 2.5m high and 2m wide, with a ‘scratched’, highly polished stainless steel finish representing the waves and action of the sea environment.

Community feedback is now being sought on the best location for the work. Four sites are currently being considered: the western entrance to the Harbour foreshore (in the triangular island between the paths), further along the foreshore (where the market usually end – shown left), at the entrance to Blowhole Point, and near Storm Bay.

The online survey shows the sculpture in position at the various location to aid consideration.
