When sculptor Jon Edgar spoke to Petworth Society, chairman Peter Jerrome was selected from the audience to sit while Jon explained how he started work.

“I decided to finish the head and had four sessions with Peter in his home,” said Jon. “I hope I have captured the essence of the man and as he is an important man to Petworth it would be lovely if others felt he should one day go on public display - maybe in The Leconfield Hall or the museum.”
