Local artist Nigel Kaines has been commissioned to produce a sculpture to celebrate a three year project at Care UK.
The sculpture will be created in the gardens of Glastonbury Court’s care home in Bury St Edmonds, marking the completion of 10 new care homes and 10 new day centres in a £60m initiative.
Nigel (picture right with Care UK regional director Phillip Steyn and Glastonbury Court home manager Jennie Rodger), of creative company Designs on Metal, said: “I’m delighted to have been selected to design and create the sculpture for Care UK. It represents a very exciting commission for us at Designs on Metal. We’re planning our design to both be visually engaging and have a great tactile quality.”
The finished sculpture, which will be unveiled in the gardens at Glastonbury Court in early 2017, will be named by residents at Care UK’s 10 Suffolk homes. Over the coming months, residents will each be making a name suggestion and voting for their favourite.
Jennie said: “We’re really pleased to have Nigel on board to realise our vision of a specially commissioned sculpture in the gardens at Glastonbury Court. The sculpture design will be a wonderful representation of the Care UK Suffolk project and will be enjoyed by residents, colleagues and visitors for years to come.”
