The words Let Glasgow Flourish originally came from the city motto on Glasgow’s coat of arms. The motto is a shortened version of the words inscribed on the bell of Our Mary and St Anne cast in 1631 – “Lord, Let Glasgow flourish through the preaching of thy word and praising thy name”. This motto was at the forefront of Vicky Lovatt’s mind when creating her design. The full, apposite wording on the sides of Vicky’s 12-inch vase is:

Let Glasgow flourish
And rise from the ashes

The Glasgow School of Art has been terribly damaged by fire not once but twice, and Vicky considered how the artists within it continue to flourish even if they do not have the inspirational building within which to work. To rise from the ashes with creativity is a wondrous thing. Vicky’s female figures might at first glance appear mournful, but they are in quiet contemplation, gathering themselves for the task ahead – helping to keep the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and The Glasgow Four alive, as Glasgow flourishes for a new generation.
