London (Central) – Whitechapel Threads

This sculpture was designed by brother and sister Tim Coppard and Hattie Coppard and was installed in 1996 as part of the Bethnal Green City Challenge Regeneration Programme. It is sited at the entrance to the Brick Lane Market and is designed to be a reminder of the garment and textile industry which was once so important to the local community. Standing five metres high, the bronze sculpture was made at Meridian Fine Arts Foundry.
