Alleyn’s School 2007

Nebrasina limestone from Italy. While most of the work in the studio is carved onto native stones, the studio has also used foreign stones for various purposes. Nebrasina is an Italian limestone with very similar properties to Hoptonwood. Here it has been carved and painted in bright colours which gives it a wonderful density of texture and a lively surface charm. Foundation stones are usually mundane items, but they can be beautiful and an integral part of the building, which this stone demonstrates.
