This is an original and unique work of art by one of the world’s most creative Letterwork Sculptors and will look magnificent both inside and out. Using the natural markings in the stone to suggest a sun, Annet has inscribed the slate with text from the epic First World War poem, In Parenthesis, by David Jones.
“The returning sun climbed over the hill to lessen the shadow of small and great things”
Burlington Blue slate is an even blue grey colour throughout and architects have often used it in landmark buildings for its natural beauty, durability and adaptability. It has been sourced from the Kirkby quarry, just above the village of Kirkby-in-Furness in Cumbria, UK. Kirkby Stone is sedimentary in nature and was formed in the Silurian period, some 300-350 million years ago.
