Pearly King Morph was inspired by the original Pearly King, Henry Croft. Born in London, in the 19th century, he was an orphan street sweeper that over his lifetime collected a lot of money for charity wearing clothes decorated with mother-of-pearl buttons. He was so well known that there is a statue of him in St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square, so I wanted to give Morph a Pearly King make-over to hit the streets of London and put smiles on people’s faces!

Buy a Morph at Auction
When the Trail ends, the super-sized Morph sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for Whizz Kidz. Whizz Kidz supports young people by providing the wheelchairs, equipment, support and confidence-building experiences they need, and campaigning for a more inclusive society.
