Memorial in oak and Portugese limestone

I recently worked on a collaboration on this memorial. It was designed by Russell Bagley, and the woodwork was overseen by Kay Corbett. My part in the commission was to supply the stone and design and carve the inscriptions and Polish eagle. The stone is in Kelling churchyard, Norfolk. I think it is a successful mix of materials and an interesting piece. The cross also partly represents a fighter plane as the father of the deceased was a pilot. The oak is sandblasted to bring out the grain and the plinth of the cross is flame-textured whereas the base is honed. The stone is called Moleanos and is incredibly hard.
