Pennard Primary Lead Creatives Project, part 2.

The structure is nearly complete and the art-work is roughed in.

The structure of the upper section of the sculpture is nearly complete and the art-work is roughed in. Inside a network of supports are in place to hold the walls now at this soft stage, when it is firm and cut into sections, when it is dry and being loaded into the kiln ¬†and during the firings when the whole thing will shrink a small amount. Holes are cut through the supports to accommodate the iron rebars that will re-enforce the concrete and secure the sections together. Other holes are placed around the sculpture so we can feed in concrete. Joins, etc will be pointed in the golden cement that will comprise most of the surface of the lower section where more pupil’s tiles will be set in to the breeze-block/cement form.

Pennard Primary School, yr 5 pupil’s panels set in the sculpture’s structure and the scale model. They have had 2 rounds of touching up and the final 2 (or more) will be done once the form’s structure is completed to ensure that the panels are part of the flow of the sculpture and don’t just look stuck on. The pupils art-work on their panels is so good it didn’t need more than strengthening the joins and repairing damage done during the inset process. It is the areas around the panels that will need careful work.
