High Tide Sculptures on Roker Beach

High Tide is the final sculpture of the St. Peter’s Riverside Sculpture Project, installed in 2001 on Roker Beach, where the River Wear meets the sea.

The work of Karl Fisher, Craig Kowles, Colin Wilbourn and Chaz Brenchley,

it consists of a set of lunar pieces, seven phases of the moon caught in concrete bowls with Brenchley’s words around the rims.

"An eyelash, a curl of stolen light around a tear's rim"

"If wishes were fishes, she'd cast nets in the sea"

"Still baleful, still hungry, still drawing water from the world's well"

"Full and fat, she can barely float:she leaks in streaks of silver"

"Adrift, almost bodiless, she aches to be newborn again - and will be"

"Losing weight, losing influence, she sees deep waters ebb away"

"Hooked as she must be, she hangs above oceans and cannot drink"
