Design a working dragon fountain for the Pembroke Mill Pond. Open to pupils of Tudor Henry School - entries should consist of either 2D drawings or a 3D model with explanations. and are to be received by 8th May 2020. Details below.
First Prize - a brand new iPad - plus 4 runners-up prizes of £50!
The winning design will be incorporated into the finished sculpture by Gideon Peterson who will make a working model of the dragon fountain. Consider yourself a professional designer & think hard about everything that needs to be considered to create a working dragon fountain and show these in your designs, either through drawings or 3D models with written explanations.
The statue of Henry the 7th, created by Harriet Addyman, already has his place at the Millpond. Supporting his coat of arms are a dragon and a greyhound. His trusted companion already has a place alongside this statue, all he needs now, is the dragon!
There have been intensive workshops at both Golden Grove School and Monkton Priory School in which the pupils created both 2D and 3D designs with older classes accessing interactive pumpoutdoor sessions. A selection of their drawings are included in the slide display below and may serve as inspiration.
Entries to be submitted by 8th May 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org. If it includes 3D models either take photographs or deliver to Autodromo, Unit 6, West Wales Business Park, Redstone Road, Narberth SA6 7ES. The winners will receive their prizes during an exhibition of dragon work held at the Town Hall after the deadline (date to be confirmed). More tips and information is provided below.
Why we need a fountain
Pembroke Millpond is an area of still water which needs aerating to combat the green algae which covers it in summer.
Things you may want to consider.
How can you create a 3D DRAGON using 2D shapes? (keeps cost of materials down)
What material should be used to ensure longevity in the water? (stop rust, weather damage etc)
Where will the fountain be situated and how will it come out of the dragon?
How many spouts, and what shape will the water make when it comes out? (will it go far, trickle, short bursts, from one squirt or lots?)Where will the water spouts run inside the dragon so they are hidden or should they even be hidden?
How often should the fountain be on? How will it look when it is off? (even just for maintenance)
Henry 7th and his dog already have their place on Mill Pond.
Here are some examples of fountains.
