Clasp was commissioned for the inauguration of the Mary Seacole Building – a place of learning for nurses. Mary Seacole is a heroine of the Crimean War and an iconic figure for the nursing profession.

Clasp represents a nurturing gesture – formed from the interior space when two hands are gently clasped, as if protecting a delicate life.

Produced with assistance by students from Albion High School, Salford.

Made in association with Architects Atherden Fuller Leng.
