The Grand Appeal Sculpture Trails

The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, teamed up with Aardman Animations to run two sculpture trails in Bristol and London. The award-winning ‘Gromit Unleashed’ in 2013 and ‘Shaun in the City’ in 2015 saw large Gromit and Shaun sculptures placed around the two cities, and I was lucky enough to be asked to create three of them.

My sculptures for the Shaun in the City trail  were ‘Candy Baa’, sponsored by Greens’ Cake Mixes and situated in Covent Garden, and ‘Sparkles the Unicorn’, sponsored by Brunel Care and situated on Horfield Common, Bristol. For ‘Gromit Unleashed’ I created ‘Patch, sponsored by Nuffield Health and situated in Clifton, Bristol and more recently, ‘Nutcracker’, a special Christmas 2016 Gromit available to win in a fundraising raffle!
