Tom Wins prestigious “Highly Acclaimed” award for craftsmanship from the Stone Federation of Great Britain at the Natural Stone Awards 2016
Tom carves a 1.2 tonne block of Highmoor Limestone into a giant Bespoke Bat Gargoyle. The bat is based on the Daubentons’ Bat which lives on and around the River Skell next to Ripon Cathedral. The Bat is known for its large hairy feet!
Tom has spent 4 months creating clay models (subsequently cast in plaster) which he then used as a guide for carving 6 large relief brick panels at Draycott Avenue, Chelsea. The new carvings were carved in-situ at number 10 Draycott Avenue as part of an enormous carving project on a new brick mansion block. The work was carried out for Daniel Mundy who designed the panels and managed the project.
