Teulu is to be built at Ysgol y Foel the primary school in Cilcain. Each year parents do something to say thank you to the school.
I have developed the sculpture to symbolise a young family mother and two children. The children in the school are involved in the building of the sculpture and amongst the pictures there is a piece about the sculpture by one of the pupils.
The first gallery shows the development of the maquette.
The base is being cast and shuttering and form work for the sculpture are being prepared.
This work thus far features in the second gallery of pictures taken late September 2013
Now the final moulds are prepared ready for the finished sculpture to be assembled on site. At the school the ground work is being prepared and by the end of this school year there will be the grand unveiling.
In this sequence of pictures the moulds are being made and the children from the school have come to see the work and to add thumb prints to the clay stage of the “Child”
