1000th pallet of Clipsham limestone ready for site
While not a very inspiring photograph, this marks a milestone in that it is the ONE THOUSANDTH pallet of stone packed and ready to leave for a project in the Cotswolds.
Over the course of the past 13 months we have worked on 400 cubic metres of Clipsham to supply the limestone needed for a new country house which, being built completely of stone, is a stonemason’s dream. Pallets of ashlar, copings, pediments and quoins – 15 on each corner and each measuring an impressive 1metre x 1 metre x 550cm – have been leaving the yard in a steady stream.
Once the shell of the house is complete we will be turning our attention to the outbuildings, so there is more to come!
The Fine Art Society exhibit
An exciting exhibition will run at The Fine Art Society Contemporary at 148 New Bond Street from 19 November until 23 December 2014. Oxford artist Angela Palmer was given access to unique V8 engine parts at Renault F1 and has given each a completely new persona by recreating them in unfamiliar materials and scales.
We were commissioned to manufacture one of the pieces in Portland stone – a double driven gear which is a small component within the engine but which has been vastly scaled up to take its place amongst the other pieces.
Opening hours for the exhibition are 10.00am – 4.00pm, Monday to Friday and entry is free.
