A unique project for our workshop: we have just completed the first two Female Busts for the Wallace Monument, Stirling, Hall of Heroes and Heroines in Stirling. The two Women chosen for the first two Busts are of Mary Slessor which Csilla completed and Maggie Keswick Jencks which Graciela completed. What a privilege!
More pictures and video of the making of the two Busts to come, then the installation at the Wallace Monument in 2019

We had the pleasure of working on a sculpture of Prince Albert within the grounds of Balmoral over the summer. There were structural issues that required attention as evident from the stress crack splitting the bronze down the left shin of the sculpture. The surface of the sculpture was also addressed and full conservation works were undertaken.

We recently had the pleasure of working on 10 beautifully carved armorial panels from St Conan's Kirk in Loch Awe. The panels were suffering badly from detached/missing wood sections as well as woodworm. Its great to see them back together again!
