The Jebb Garden Sculpture Installation
The project Children Displaced by Conflict, a commemoration of the creation of Save the Children Fund by Eglantyne Jebb, evolved and grew through community engagement. It was extended from the initial idea of a contemporary sculpture into two sculptures and a grass labyrinth and became an impactful, major art installation at the entrance to The Cremorne Gardens beside the Mere at Ellesmere. When the Artworks were installed, the positivity of the public response was such that it was decided the area should be renamed The Jebb Garden giving this Artwork a major profile. It also places the Jebb Garden Installation at the start of The Ellesmere Sculpture Trail.
1 The Sisters Nick Eames
An abstract interpretation of the closeness of the two sisters is represented through the imagery of the mirror image of a split piece of kindling wood. The idea interprets the essential strength of the Sisters which enabled them to stand strong to achieve their purpose.
