Queens Diamond Jubilee Sculpture

Barnshaw Section Benders worked closely with Craufurd to supply the best quality sculpture to commemorate the Queens Diamond Jubilee. Craufurd was approached by Windsor and Eton Society that wanted to mark the occasion with a permanent memorial.

The design of the sculpture consisted of a beautifully bent spiral decorated with 60 circles, which was originally suggested by a 14 year-old Caroline Basra from Windsor Girls’ school. The idea was for the tribute of 60 ‘diamond’ spheres to represent each year of the Queen’s reign.

Barnshaws was awarded the tube bending project due to the company’s excellent bending knowledge and capabilities, and impeccable work pieces provided too many creative architects.

The spiraled pipe sculpture consisted of 1/6th scale maquette and the upper most sphere replicated ‘diamond’ as the ultimate feature piece. The mirror polished stainless steel spheres were 230 diameters and were attached to a satin polished 76mm stainless steel spiral tube bent by Barnshaw aluminium bending department. The overall height of the sculpture is 4.65m tall when on it’s granite plinth.

The sculpture was placed in the King Edward’s Court shopping centre and on the 9th October 2012 was inaugurated by the Queen.
