Friar Park, Henley

Description of Project

This small but intricate project determined the course of my career as a stone carver. After training and a few intermittent and small jobs I was ready to start a new career by securing a place on a teacher training course. Just before I was due to start the offer came to carve this exquisite little bestial frieze for an Edwardian mansion in Henley called Friar Park, owned by ex-Beatle George Harrison. I could not resist and cancelled my place. Two decades after replacement the new carved stonework is now comfortably weathered in.
