in Progress at St Joseph's School
St Joseph's School held an Open Day on Wednesday 15
December when we were able to see the sculpture which Cranleigh DFAS is helping
to fund. It is placed in a commanding position in front of the house, with well
established trees providing a framework.
Janet Stanley, Head of Art,
has designed it with great sensitivity to her subject. Three figures are joined
together in a fluid arrangement of arms highlighting the unity, care and
understanding St Joseph's delivers to their learners.
sculpture will be covered with coloured mosaic tiles when completed - the
weather plays a dominant role as they must be applied when frost and snow do not
Work will continue in the spring when the children will be
employed fixing the tiles to the figures. This promises to be a most
significant piece of sculpture.
here with the work in progress are Yvonne Farrington, YA co-ordinator,
Baker, Chairman and Janet Stanley, Designer and Head of Art
