A stunning hand crafted 8" scale statuette of a made from photographs taken at Crewe Toll Fire Station in Edinburgh. Two firefighters who had just returned from a fire call were kind enough to set themselves up as a pair on a high pressure hose (branch) to explain to the makers how they worked together. The finished statuette is made in an eight inch scale and is called 'The Branch'. It depicts a pair of firefighters directing a high pressure jet of water at the seat of a blaze. The front firefighter is primarily concerned with controlling the jet and checking the close frontal proximity for threats and possible stances. The rear firefighter maintains the link with the backup crew and is the pairs, longer range, eyes and ears, assimilating their position and effectiveness. Handmade in bronze cold cast resin.
The sculpture is very popular within the UK Fire & Rescue Service as a retirement gift for colleagues. They are a great reminder of service and will be cherished for years to come
