The Thornflower by Charlotte Mayer FRSS at Coventry Cathedral

Charlotte Mayer's sculpture for peace and reconciliation is now in Coventry Cathedral, which has an active Reconciliation Ministry. This beautiful Cathedral, designed by Basil Spence, is a treasure trove of works of art by Epstein, Piper, Sutherland, Frink, Clarke, Coper and others. The Remembrance season has seen a performance of Britten's War Requiem, commissioned for the opening of the Cathedral in 1962. The building stands alongside the ruin of the old Cathedral, destroyed by bombs in 1940.

Now at HSBC Bank, Solent Business Park, Fareham - Soar by Rebecca Newnham MRBS (glass aggregate). For the clients, Soar considers a swan taking off from water and the symmetry of its wings in reflection. This sculpture has a strong relationship with the surrounding wetlands of Forum One as Bens Lake and New lake are close to the building as well as the rather more obvious proximity of the River Solent.’

Echoes in the Memory

Blown Away by Sioban Coppinger FRBS
This was a stunning exhibit in Echoes in the Memory in 2014. Thanks to the generosity of Peter and Carole Wilcock from Winchester who visit the gallery regularly Blown Away is now in the Boyes Garden at the National Memorial Arboretum's new Remembrance Centre in Staffordshire. Click on the link on the right for more information.

Sioban says of the sculpture, Blown Away is a study of a moment. The young man, his life fleeting as a gust of leaves, sees the whole world in a glance. ‘…Time present and time past are both perhaps present in time future…’. Inspired by T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets, this piece pays homage to so many brave people whose lives are altered by their time. The plinth fabricated in mild steel is reminiscent of hastily dispatched munitions… or a ship's funnel… left to rust. Its stripes of bronze reflect adopted strength.’

A poem by Ingrid Seifert, a violinist with London Baroque, inspired by Blown Away

JUNE 2014
Where will you be
what will you say
when war with
laurel leaves
the wreath of honour weaves,
when wind while
youthful years
are spent blows dry their tears,
when fear holds
hands with me
to frighten off the enemy
and darkness
shines its light
on my companion’s longest night?
Where will you be
what will you say
when you remember
that hope and glory’s dying ember
was blown away?
Where will you be
what will you say?

Much of the work shown at The Garden Gallery is equally suitable for interiors. The gallery is gradually offering more pieces for the home and office, and last year sold two bronzes by Charlotte Mayer FRBS to yacht designers for a luxury yacht.
