Heart of Glass

To mark the forthcoming ban on smoking in public places in England, Corby, the midlands town which has the country's highest proportion of smoking-related deaths has commissioned a piece of public art. In early July, local artist Andrena Strang will collect all the glass ashtrays from local bars and restaurants (an estimated 20,000) and will melt them down and produce a glass statue of a human heart which will be exhibited outside the town's Sir Billy Bremner Leisure Centre.
