Stone – you get into some odd positions

When you are a letter carver and commissioned to make a plaque part of the process is installation. I was asked by Eton College to design a new plaque to replace one that had deteriorated, I mentioned this in an earlier post. Now when I came to install I first had to remove the old plaque which was embedded into one of the College’s ancient brick walls. This is me hard at work.

I think it took me an hour or so to get the limestone piece out. Limestone has a habit of eroding – partly due to acid rain.

It’s a great outdoor job!
