I designed this paschal candle holder as a memorial to my parents-in-law and it now resides at St Peter and St Paul, Heytesbury in Wiltshire.
It is made from a turned stack of English elm. Elms used to crowd around the villages of the Wylye Valley, so profusely that when looking down into the valley from the surrounding downs during the summer months, they appeared as vast green clouds cloaking each of the villages.
The lettering was designed by the letter designer and cutter, Caroline Webb and is incised in bronze by Mark Phillips. The top holder was made in spun and beaten bronze by the metal smith John Barker. All are local artisans.
