Architectural lettering – 1

Architectural lettering means plaques. Architects often commission pieces to record a building, the topping out or the end of the project. This piece shown here was for a house in London, placed many years after the event as a permanent record. The piece was carved in slate.

The lettering style is my own freely adapted. What one is after is a freedom rigorously controlled.
