Who is Florence?

Florence started her life as a blank snail but was then transformed into a beautiful colourful snail at Each Peach Childcare in Hove. Florence is huggable, touchable, stroke-able and irresistible to touchy-feely fingers; so we decided to allow the children to have a completely self-led, sensory experience. They did some fantastic mark making and expressed ideas through shapes and application techniques. It was lovely to see some of the children following the grooves and feeling the surfaces with their painty fingers.

The interaction between the children and the sculpture led to the natural, spontaneous, beautiful marks made, which shows in the finished artwork. Florence is now splattered with energy and dripping with character! 

How Florence was created…

Florence is our beautiful snail and a willing participant of the #BeMoreSnail campaign last year in Brighton. The hugely successful campaign launched by the Martlets Hospice was created to help us all slow down and enjoy our city. To live our busy lives at a snail’s pace. There were snails all over Brighton and everyone got involved with visitors traveling far and wide to take part in the challenge. You can see the timeline of events, The Daily Snail, and find out more on the Snail Space Brighton website.
