Handcrafted marble plants decorating libraries and public spaces in Hull are a tribute to Eva Crackles, (1918-2007), a Botanist who spent her life collecting and collating plants. She particularly loved wild flowers and studied the flora that grew on bomb sites after World War 2. Linda Brothwell has replicated the flowers documented by Eva, remarking that these pioneer plants are reminders that libraries are seed-beds for pioneering ideas.
Linda Brothwell’s major exhibition, including the marble plants inspired by Eva Crackles, is in Hull until 10 February 2018.
