September 2018

I photographed this on an early morning when the early autumn light was shining through on of the stained glass windows a couple of weeks ago.

I completed this stone earlier in the year and it was fixed into the floor of Lincoln Cathedral’s south west transept. It’s a large piece (850mm x 750mm ) with an in-laid copper cross (dating from WW2) and inlaid lettering which proved very problematic during cutting due to the soft nature of the Lincoln Redbed which was used. The resin in-fill also caused some staining issues due to the very cold weather experienced in late winter 2018 resulting in the resin taking a long time to set. At the time I wasn’t very happy with it, but a few months after being installed, it’s bedding in nicely.
