Paws for Thought

Paws for Thought was designed and painted by artist duo and sisters Phillippa and Rachael Corcutt.

Design summary

About their design inspiration, Pip and Rach said, “This design evokes a sense of calm and mindfulness and the importance of taking a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Inspired by the lush vegetation and plants in the famous Canary Wharf Sky Garden, we want to reflect the oasis of calm found in a busy and lively city, and draw on the sensory experiences that gardens provide.”

Sensory items

We asked our artists to come up with a scent and a touch item that relates to their design to give a multi-sensory perspective to their concept. Some of these items will be incorporated into our sighted guide and sensory tours. Pip and Rach's sensory items are:

  • Touch item: A fern.
  • Scent item: Camomile.
