Pillar of Balls, an outdoor sculpture, was a public commission 2002 and 2005 from Statens Konstråd for Bostadsbolaget Poseidon AB, Göteborg.
The scuplture is placed in a plantation designed by a gardener from the Antroposofic Center in Järna, Sweden.
Location: a residential area called Olskroken in the city of Göteborg.
Purpose: the sculpture should work in the plantation independent of season.
Measure: height 220 cm, Ø 70 cm

The Balls of Clay are thread onto the steel bars, which are welded together in a triangular form to support one another.
In may 2002 the sculpture was placed in the plantation and in june 2005 I had to do some reparation due to damage, after that no futher damage has occured.
