Casting my stone carvings

21 July, 2022 – 2:26 pm

There have been a few of my carvings that I simply can’t part with so I have decided to make moulds of them. This means that everyone who likes them can have a copy at a fraction of the cost.

My latest additions are my Hengist and Horsa bookends and my Medieval Cog bookends.

Cog Bookends;

I am really pleased with how these have come out, the jesmonite has been mixed with Lepine limestone dust to give it this off white colour. The casts are available to buy at £75 a pair. (book not included)

The originals were carved out of French limestone and took me roughly 30 hours to carve.

My cog bookends will also be available to buy from the Medieval centre in Sandwich, a proportion of the sale will go back to the trust to help with their work of building their own cog. The Nicholas project, please follow this link to find out more.

Hengist and Horsa;

I have mixed Tetbury limestone dust with these ones and I can change the dust to make them different colours. The original are carved out of Forest of Dean sandstone and took me 50hrs. The casts are available to buy for £95 a pair. (book not included)
