Work For Sale

Hope

Sometimes hope is worth having around. One of my favourite Spanish words is the word for hope - esperanza. Hopton Wood limestone.

This piece stands on its own, and is 37 x 8 x 3 cms, 2 kilos. £130 plus shipping.

Twat (no offence)

This word speaks for itself. If you don't know what it means, you don't need it. If you know someone it fits, nothing else will do. Hand carved and oiled Kilkenny limestone.

This piece stands on its own, and is 25 x 8 x 4 cms, 2.2 kilos. £130 plus shipping.

Memento Mori Circle

Memento mori is Latin for 'remember you will die'. Yes, I know, chirpy and upbeat. It is commonly seen on headstones and memorials and encourages the reader to get right with God for you know not the hour of your death. Aurisina limestone.

This piece hangs on the wall, and is 20 x 20 x 2.5 cms, 2.5 kilos. £140 plus shipping.

Memento Mori Long

Memento mori is Latin for 'remember you will die'. Yes, I know, chirpy and upbeat. It is commonly seen on headstones and memorials and encourages the reader to get right with God for you know not the hour of your death. Nabresina limestone.

This piece stands on its own, and is 55 x 7.5 x 5 cms, 5.5 kilos. £170 plus shipping.

Swearing

I'm sorry, my mother would be so ashamed, but I swear - in stone. Arse has been the most popular and I usually have a couple of variations in stock (see below). Other swears can be carved, no words too obscene. Email me if you really need some heavy cursing.

Lombardic Arse

Carved in Lombardic capitals on white marble. This 12th century style arse stands on its own, and is around 30 x 9 x 4 cms, 2.75 kilos. £160 plus shipping.
