Trinity Gardens 2000
Location : Trinity Gardens, Margate, Kent

Trinity Gardens Memorial Bench was designed and made in collaboration with artist/blacksmith Julian Coode. The commission was instigated at the request of Canterbury WRAC, to commemorate and celebrate women in the service of their country during the 20th century.

 


This piece was runner up in the Rouse Kent Public Art Awards 2001:
"...I was very impressed with your bench which was shortlisted for this award. It is a highly successful collaboration with a strong and innovative use of materials, clean lines... I felt that the women who had commissioned the piece...had made an enlightened and courageous choice."
(Marjorie Allthorpe-Guyton, Director of Visual Arts - The Arts Council of England)
