Eglantyne Jebb Memorial

The completed clay sculpture, prior to casting it in bronze

Commissioned by a private benefactor to mark Save the Children’s hundredth anniversary, my bust of Eglantyne Jebb, the charity’s founder and pioneer of children’s human rights, was unveiled at the Royal Albert Hall in May 2019. It is now on permanent public display in the library of Lady Margaret Hall, her Oxford University alma mater. There is a second edition at Save the Children’s London HQ.
