    SELAW - Reflection of Wales

    Yesterday evening I joined comedian Stan Stennett and Rhondda playwright Frank Vickery at Porth County Community School to launch the latest Heritage Lottery funded cultural project which the school has been running.

    The 'SELAW' Project - 'A Reflection of Wales' - was developed over 3 terms of 'E3' sculpture workshops at the school. The students involved designed and made all elements of this stunning kinetic, revolving 'Giant Jellyfish', constructed out of aluminium, acrylic, plastic, steel and mixed media, working with the artist Cindy Ward of 'Motor Mango'.

    Cindy explains that 'SELAW' is a light box sculpture, constructed in mirror stainless steel, pepousse copper letters, with wire, clear-film illustrations of Welsh nature, found in, or around water. Flowing through the 'SELAW' light boxes, is a 20 metre mirror-mosaic pathway, that winds half way around the hall, and links up with the ceramic mosaic, (designed by Mobile Arts) that describes each end of the Welsh coastline. This circles the rest of the hall. Above are placed painted murals, illustrating the heroes of Wales (designed by Pippins who have worked with Porth County and other Rhondda schools before).

    Previous artistic activities by the school supported by HLF have won prizes.
