Commissioned by Anstey Parish Council this mosaic leaf sculpture will be installed near the David Wilson Homes Groby Road development in Leicestershire. Inspired by Charnwood Forest, the sculpture was designed and created by award winning mosaic artist Julie Vernon.
Julie created the abstract mosaic design using 12 different shades of green glass, developing patterns and movement within the work.
As many of the street names in the development are named after soldiers from the first world war, it was decided during the public consultation that a mosaic poppy would sit at the base of the sculpture as a tribute.
