Over our working life we have, on occasion, been commissioned to make memorial pieces. These are, by their nature always highly personal and poignant. It has been a privilege to work with Nick,Mandy and Chloe Gazzard, and their wider family, in creating a memorial bench for Hollie, who was murdered in Gloucester in 2014.
The bronze inscription to Hollie surrounds a revolving 'friendship' globe for sitters to roll while having a quiet contemplative moment.
The Hollie Gazzard Trust www.holliegazzard.org has been set-up to work with local agencies in promoting awareness of domestic abuse and knife crime, and to fund and support young hairdressers, a job Hollie loved.
