ARM Auction for Mind
These letters are hand carved by Barry Thomas, just for this auction. They are not available for sale anywhere else.
The stone is Nabresina limestone from Trieste in Italy. It is a hard limestone which cuts to a beautiful crisp finish. The letters are carved with a hammer and chisel in exactly the same way as the Romans carved their letters.
This is Barry carving a similar style of letter.
Each piece of stone is 11cm x 11cm x 2cm. There is just one of each capital letter and an ampersand. Each piece has a hole in the back so you can hang it on the wall.
All cut with a hammer and chisel. Usually in Hopton Wood limestone from near my home in Derbyshire, but also on marble, Welsh slate, Nabresina, sandstone, Cumbrian green slate and others.
