Meadowgate is a school which specialises in assisting children with
special needs. Paul Margetts was asked to design and make a sundial to for
the newly developed school play area.
The school's logo - a butterfly- was used as a theme for the sundial. The
dial plate included images of an alarm clock and school bus to illustrate
to the children the start and end of the school day.
The project began with a
blacksmithing demonstration at the school and a presentation about Paul
Margetts' sculpture, the school then worked with Paul to develop a design
for the sundial.
