The metal-work and sculpture of Paul Margetts

"Tree of Life" Sculpture for Elvetham Heath Primary School, Hampshire

The school decided that it would like to commission a metal sculpture based on the theme
 "The Tree of Life". The sculpture was designed in collaboration with the staff and pupils at the school.


 

The sculpture includes many features that suggest various aspects of life and it is designed to inspire children and arouse their curiosity. The elements included describe community, growth, strength, sadness, harvest, friendship etc. The tree is forged in mild steel and finished in graphite paint.

   

The project began with a metalworking demonstration at the school by Paul Margetts using traditional blacksmithing equipment similar to the tools that would be used to make the sculpture.

The children researched ideas for the sculpture and prepared drawings that expressed some of their ideas for elements of the sculpture.
