Over the past few yars, the Parents Association of Park Primary School, Invergordon, have been creating a Quiet Garden for the pupils in the corner of the play area. It already had features such as magical wooden furniture and large flower tubs and trees, some of which were created in memory of two children who have died and who had attended the school.
However, the parents felt that the garden lacked a focal point and contacted me to create a mosaiced column for the centre of the garden, which would have a sundial placed on top.
Most of the design was made at my studio, on to mesh, and tranferred to the structure on site. On the day, the weather was atrocious, but the sun came out for a couple of hours, conveniently when the school's Eco-group arrived to help decorate the top with butterflies, bees and the name of the school.
All in all, it was a very wet, exhausting but satisfying day!
