Charlotte Mayer's 'Thornflower' joins the collection at Coventry Cathedral

Now a permanent piece on display.

Charlotte Mayer's magnificent sculpture for peace and reconciliation, Thornflower, has recently joined the permanent collection of Coventry Cathedral.


The sculpture which initially explored her own family history and experience of the Holocaust has evolved to represent what Mayer describes as ‘an urgent wish to make a sculpture uniting opposing elements of thorns and flowers, which would speak of reconciliation, peace and oneness.’


This striking piece will be on display alongside works of art by Sir Jacob Epstein, John Piper, Graham Sutherland, Geoffrey Clarke and Elisabeth Frink among others. 


Another further edition of Thornflower is also currently on display on the Pangolin London Sculpture Trail at Kings Place.
