“ In Safe Hands “
‘A Creation from Isolation’ Reminding our NHS & Key Workers that we appreciate their hard work - & even more during these uncertain times!
Whilst in isolation British Sculptor Charles Elliott wanted to create a sculpture that could go on show outside the Elliott of London studio. He wanted to help raise awareness for the NHS & Emergency service efforts during the Covid-19 panademic, but also to remind key workers on their travels to keep up the hard work looking after the world.
Elliott of London was founded by British Sculptor Charles Elliott, he has helped the brand to earn themselves national and international recognition already. With their sculptures shown at various locations including at the prestigious Royal Ascot Racecourse, Hatfield House, Royal Chelsea Hospital, Bolesworth Castle, Hickstead Showground, Kings Rd Chelsea, Various Shooting Grounds and Ashridge Estate .
Each piece is initially designed & handmade by Charles & his devoted team, in their sculpture studio on the border of Buckinghamshire & Hertfordshire. Each of their sculptures shows the real movement, energy and grace of their subjects, Charles wanted each piece to see and feel life. Elliott of London always go in with a hands-on approach using various traditional and modern techniques.
The 1.25m sphere sculpture symbolises the love and care presented by our health workers, not only in the NHS but worldwide in all the different sectors.
The hands represent the true love volunteers, health workers & many others have shown throughout this recent international crisis, carrying the world through the epidemic.
Designed and Handcrafted by Elliott of London from mild steel. This piece is hot zinc galvanised initially to secure and protect the piece from nature and rust for over 30 years. "Each sail piece individually textured and finished by hand!" Designer Charles.
Our inspired sculpture is now show in Berkhamsted,Hertfordshire alongside the A41 at the Elliott of London Studio, you can see ‘In Safe Hands’ 65cm sphere illuminated blue.
We hope the key workers travelling to and from work can be reminded that we fully appreciate their support and hard work.
