Letter cutting in progress. The birdbath bowl is made from Purbeck Thornback stone which is a rather hard and dense, beautifully shelly limestone that is an absolute joy to carve and is perfect for lettering and fine detail carving
The finished bowl. The spiral effect is the result of dressing the stone using a bullnose boaster in drafts working in circles from the outside in. This bowl was actually made from an old flagstone. Click here to see How It's Made
The finished bowl has been mounted on a rustic carved Portland stone plinth and base. How It's Made
