Large Lewis Knight Carving Commission
Hand carved in Portland Limestone

Private commission for client in North Lincolnshire

It was a delight to take on this private commission to carve a larger version of my Lewis Knight. The commission came about as in my own time, some years ago, I had created a smaller carving of the Lewis Knight for pure pleasure. It was inspired by the famous Lewis Chessmen found in Northern Scotland and the much smaller version was exhibited many years ago.

Albion stone kindly supplied the stone block, a clay model of the large Lewis Knight was made and approved by the client. Once approved the stone block was marked up and larger elements of 'negative space' that surrounded the piece, were removed. A full section profile was created, before the front profile was undertaken. Lastly the excitement of the Sculptural stone carving began. 

A timescale was given for the whole commission and it was delivered to the location and set in place for the client on his premises. The client & his wife were extremely delighted with their new Sculptural Carving on it's Delabole slate base.
