1992 Plaque Progress: Design Completed

The design stage is complete for the 1992 form plaque. I worked with representatives from the Form of 1992 to come up with a list of events, and the following were chosen by them to represent their 6th Form experiences at SPS:

  • Left: A large gavel represents a successful year for the SPS Debate team
  • Right: Crossed oars represent an eventful Crew season for both girls and boys teams
  • Center Top: A closed book with the initials C. H. C. representing the end of Charles Halsey Clark’s tenure as Rector
  • Center Bottom: A sickle and hammer symbol broken in many pieces, with the letters USSR, representing the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

I will be posting photos of the carving process here on the Form Plaque Project blog and on the Form Plaque Project Facebook page when I begin working on the carving process of the 1992 plaque.

2000_final_drawing_web

The design stage is complete for the 2000 Form plaque. I worked with members of the Form of 2000 to come up with a list of events, and the following was chosen by them to represent events from their 6th Form year:

  • Top Center: A Koinobori (fish-shaped wind sock) along the top of the design represents the 50th anniversary of the Seikei School exchange
  • Center Left and Right: Oak leaves represent the 2000 class gift of an oak tree planted on the grounds
  • Center: A nutcracker in center represents the 20th anniversary performance of the Nutcracker Ballet, which was choreographed by Lisa de Ribère
  • Background: The crossed crew oars represents the girls and boys crews’ victories at the Worcester Regatta
  • Bottom Left and Right: Two Roman numeral “M”s (1000) represent the beginning of the new millennium

I will now begin carving of the 2000 plaque and will be posting photos of the carving process as it progresses – stay tuned for more information!
