Recently we completed the restoration of three over 6ft tall statues carved by John Skeaping, the husband to Barbra Hepworth for six years and well renowned carver who is known best for his work in stone and equestrian pieces.
The statues were the artists last large scale commission, they were carved from Nigerian Opepe for Kings College Cambridge, below are some historic photos of them stood in place.
Yesterday evening was the annual York Guild of Building Craftsmanship Awards and once again we were delighted to have been shortlisted for an award. We were enjoying an evening talking to the other craftsmen in attendance and watching the presentation of nominated work and then it was time for the awards…....
Where it was fantastic to find out that we had won the 'Masters Award' for the recreation of John Soane’s Ark of the Masonic Covenant.
