Freehand carved from a reclaimed roof slate.
I can make these to order- please use the contact page, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
After carving the Uffington horse for a stable sign, I wanted to do more in the way of chalk hill figures.
In 2014, I was given this very large (and heavy) Cornish roof slate (60 x 40 cm), so it was the ideal media to carve a representation of the Long Man of Wilmington.
I still have this piece if you are interested- please use the contact form or email email@example.com
Here’s the slate after carving and the beginning of enamelling the piece by hand;
Hours of careful enamelling, and the Long Man is finished;
