Whilst installing a new memorial in an Oxfordshire Churchyard, we were able to take a look at this headstone we carved several years ago. It's a good example of how the natural weathering process on limestone can enhance the carving and look beautiful in natural surroundings. Spot the yaffle in the beech tree.

A memorial need not be a headstone or plaque - we were commissioned to make this new stone vase for flowers as a unique and special tribute to a Churchwarden. Alec shaped the limestone by hand and carved the design and lettering boldly, to make a beautifully textured tactile form.
