Kilkenny limestone water feature

I recently made this piece for a private garden in Norfolk.

The client saw my work in an exhibition in Houghton Hall, run by Norfolk by Design. The process of making such a piece is very laborious, as the stone is really hard. This makes is more rewarding in a way, and the hardness of the material is beneficial in terms of durability and frost resistance. It also me and the material can be polished to give very different surface tones and texture, which is something I like to explore. Here are a few images of the various stages. Special thanks to my assistant Dan Meek for his expertise (see video at the bottom) and our local hero Steve Cooke of A&B Clark, whose expertise with moving stone is invaluable.
