We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

I have been thinking for a while that it might be interesting to have photos in the newsletter of work by ASV members or past members that we come across in our travels.

I took the attached photos of a piece called "THE ORIGINAL CHILDREN" at Ashwood High School when I was there to vote last weekend. 
As you can read in the photos of the plaques, it was made by Stanley Hammond MBE, (notable member and past president ASV) donated to the school by a past principal and unveiled by the then minister of education in 1980.

If you see a work by a current or past member, send Jenny a photo for the newsletter.
