Ysgol Preseli School Crymych (2011)

PLANED (Pembrokeshire Local Action Network for Enterprise and Development), in conjunction with the Community Council of Crymych and the school (Ysgol y Preseli), are working to improve the existing landscape at the corner of the junction to Ysgol y Preseli. Commissioning Perryn Butler was asked to design and install a finished work that complements and acts as a focal point for the larger scheme, incorporating the name of the school.

The site has a prominent location at the gateway to the town and allows the opportunity to create an artistic feature for the locality. PLANED, Pembrokeshire County Council, the school and the Community Council are keen to see art incorporated into the landscape design.

Perryn's design is on a structure like a long barrow which was constructed like a traditional Pembrokeshire hedge-bank. She worked with Mr Dai Rees, county landscape architect. The mound goes around the bend and the sculpture follows the curve. It is made of reclaimed slate and stainless steel with lead and copper integrated. The letters are cut out of stainless steel for visibility and longevity.

Pembroke Dock Heritage Project (2004-2006)

Pembroke Dock Heritage, a set of six Bronze panels in the wall of the ancient Royal Dockyard in Pembroke, depicts the dockyard's and historic naval town's history from 1814 -1941 in which countless ships of the line and five royal yachts were built. The ancient dockyard was also the number one flying boat station in the world.

The completed project has each of the six bronze panels set into the walls of the Historical Naval Dockyard Site, within site of the Napoleonic Martello Guntower. The opening ceremony for the Pembroke Dock Heritage Project was on July 3rd 2006 in the presence of H.R.H. Prince Charles. The Bronzes now form an important aspect of Pembroke's touristic appeal.

This project took nearly two years from the planning stage to the installation. Perryn carved each image out of Bathstone, from which a mould was taken. She then cast the Bronzes using the lost wax process.
