ST. THOMAS’S PEACE GARDEN

The project includes designs for steel gates, railings and plaques for a new garden of peace developed amidst the ruins of St Thomas's Church, Birmingham. The imagery used in the gates, railing and plaques embraces peace in very broad terms. It considers peace in contrast to war, as equality between different racial groups and in ecological terms.

The commission involved the artist working with students from Lea Mason Church of England Secondary School, who initiated the concept of the project in the first instance. A number of other groups including the Birmingham Inter faiths Council, The Junior Chamber of Commerce and Ex- Servicemen's groups.
