The tree of life ~ Coscote Hospice, Bloxwich
This sculpture by artist Tim Ward was designed for the central courtyard of the new build Hospice. Then it was built to represent the ‘Tree of Life’ and was constructed using stainless steel and cast glass, with oak seating and LED lighting.
The sculpture is a focal point for the scheme and allows patients, family, friends and staff to sit in the courtyard under this colourful tree. Teign Valley Glass was commissioned to make the glass leaves for this piece. 170 leaves were made in total in various different colours.
When the sun shines on the glass leaves you can really see their true beautiful colours. Glass is a great material for both sculptural use inside and outside as glass is hard wearing and resilient against the elements.
