Kew Palace chandelier

The Temple of Imagination was originally created in 2006 to celebrate the restoration of Kew Palace, and is a collaborative project between Historic Royal Palaces, Kew Gardens, local community groups and artists.

Emily was commissioned to design and make a collaborative artwork to hang inside the temple as a part of the Kew Gardens outreach programme.

Kew Palace was a family home to the Royal family during the 18th century and was home to many royal children. The finished hanging chandelier was made up of over 100 light bulbs, each engraved with images, portraits, names and dates from the history of Kew Palace.
