Care and maintenance for Sculpture and furniture

Sculpture

Sculptures should be transported and stored in an upright position with the weight supported from the base. Slate needs little maintenance but an occasional application of clear stone wax on the slate and mortar will help retain its maximum tactile appeal and provide protection from the elements.

Only non-ferrous metals are used so sculptures will not rust, although metals may develop a patina through exposure to the elements. These may be cleaned in the appropriate way although many people simply enjoy the artwork’s ageing process.

Furniture

Table tops can be separated from their bases when transported. When reassembling, only hand-tighten the nuts – take care not to over-tighten them.

The wrought iron bases, seats and plinths are hand-forged by Georgina Richards Artistic Blacksmith. Bespoke designs are acid etched to complement the slate and galvanised for year-round outdoor use.
