Chelsea Flower Show Sculptures 2016
Five Meningitis Sufferers were recently scanned in London to create life-size 3d models for reproductions by CNC. The sculptures cut from Cedar wood are to be displayed at the Chelsea Flower Show 2016 to raise awareness and to encourage sponsorship and income for the Meningitis trust.
The scans were divided into multiple layers, 3d cut by CNC then bonded together as a full size assembly. The hair, facial features and other small detail were hand crafted to highlight and make the sculptures life like.
We were commissioned to make four life size statues of Meningitis sufferers, to be displayed at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show- May 2016.
Award winning garden designer John Everiss from Chorley, who was a Gold Award Winner at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2014, commissioned Gcnc Ltd to recreate four wooden life size statue’s by CNC Machining from 3d Scan’s out of layered Cedar Wood.
Director Graham Chapelhow – ‘‘ Having supplied to all industries such as F1, Bentley Motors, BBC series Silent Witness and the Home Office for 3d Forensics this is one of the most exciting projects in our portfolio. As a result of the publicity for far, we have already been commissioned for further projects. ‘’
With the Chelsea Flower Show becoming a regular fixture in the Royal calendar … The Queen, as Patron of the Royal Horticultural Society, will see the sculptures as part of the Garden design.
