White Wreath is a suicide prevention and awareness service providing support to those suffering mental trauma, founded on the belief that no one should have to cope alone.
Dan Elborne has highlighted the volume of this ongoing crisis, making a handmade terracotta piece every 40 seconds (the world suicide statistic), representing each death by suicide during the 48 hours, 24 minutes and 15 seconds that Dan worked continuously to create 4,356 ceramic pieces.
Sit and reflect for a while and be moved by the significance of this work that aims to promote conversation about the difficult but important subjects of mental health and suicide prevention.
