New Neo-Classical Chapel in Oxfordshire : Architectural Ornament

This contract involves the production of a large number of ornamental components for a new-build Catholic chapel and mausoleum situated in a private estate in Oxfordshire. This is a workshop production requiring the participation of four carvers over an extended period. The carvings are in Portland Stone, and the design is particularly high specification as much of the detailing is unusually fine in scale, and particularly demanding of the skill and accuracy of the carvers. It also pushes the stone to its limits, such that the handling of the capitals after carving requires great care in order to avoid damage.
