Signboard on sculpture plinth in front of the entrance to The Granary, one of the housing blocks on the development on Ecclesall Road. Description: A 2 metre high naturalistic sculpture of a hop set on brick pedestal... The individual parts of the hop are attached to a central pole concealed within the structure, which also forms the stalk at the top of the sculpture Commission: J.F.Finnegan Ltd. who redeveloped the site. Comment: A second piece, 'Hop and Sheaf of Barley', also designed by Johnson, is sited at the rear entrance to the site on Summerfield Street. Although this was conceived as part of the same project as 'Hop Sculpture' they are quite different and less naturalistic in style.
