Sculpture for Bournemouth Council Recycling Department 2015

The Bournemouth Recycling Department held a competition in the city's schools and commissioned us to translate the winning ideas into sculptures using  household waste and recycling. The theme was the Sea. The sculptures were displayed in the Visitor Centre at Hengistbury Head but we photographed them on the beach first.

The Mermaid with Golden Ear Rings inspired by winner Erin  Lee of Moordown St John's School whose drawing is below. We posed the Mermaid on the nearby beach before placing her in the Visitor Centre.


The Harpooning Squid was inspired by winner Hannah Beretta of St Luke's School.Her drawing is below.
We hung the Squid  from the rafters in the Visitor Centre after it had an outing by the sea.

 .




The Trash Fish is inspired by by winner Shannon Roberts of Nigel Bowes School who imagined a fish full of rubbish, Rubbish, especially plastic, is a serious and growing problem in the oceans.




The Boat was made by the Turtle Class of  the Nigel Bowes Campus as explained below.
