Metal art donation decorates Gingin library


Metal Art donation for library

The Shire of Gingin library has been made that extra bit special with the addition of a stunning work of art. Local
artist Crystal Pascoe, who specialises in metal art, donated a beautiful rustic scene of Gingin town’s iconic water wheel
to the Shire of Gingin which is now on display at reception of the Gingin library located in the CRC building.

Mrs Pascoe, who was commissioned to produce the steel sculptures in the garden in front of the CRC building for its official
opening in 2012, decided she wanted to give something back to the community for supporting her blossoming artistic career.

It took Mrs Pascoe several weeks to produce the two-dimensional water wheel sculpture. “Once I came up with the design it took me about a week to cut the metal,” she said. “Then there’s the rusting effect – you can use chemicals to achieve the results faster but I prefer the look that the natural rusting process delivers, despite taking longer.”

An artist from childhood Mrs Pascoe is passionate about her craft and supporting her local community, and she is available to produce commissioned pieces.
