Mallow Community National school sculptures

The sculptures for Mallow community national school were finally installed last week.This project was over a year in the making and included full pupil participation .
The brief asked for an exploration of the five core values of the School i.e. Excellence in Education,Care, Equality, Community and Respect.
The pupils were asked to respond to these themes in written and drawing assignments. I converted the pupils drawings into decal ‘buttons’ which formed part of the design of the fabric decoration of each sculpture . In keeping with the ethos of this Educate Together school I insured that each and every pupil of the school was represented in the final design.There is an interactive element to the sculptures ,they are life sized and accessible for pupil interaction. The faces of each sculpture are recessed into the circular shape and are made from mirrored stainless steel .
