Portland Stone

Today was a wet day of unexpected delights. As the snails appeared to enjoy the refreshing rain we thought we would have races and in going to collect them we visited  the beautiful Tout Quarry Sculpture Park and Nature ReserveHere Freya was encouraged by the wonderful Hannah Sofaer to carve her collection of friends in Portland stone.  
A wonderful day enjoyed by all even, as you can see, by the snails.


  1. Oh, I've always wanted to do a stone carving, was it difficult? The snail drawing is lovely, would love to see how the carving turned out.

  2. It is very soft stone and very lovely to work with. Stone carving is lovely you should definitely try it Kate.

  3. That's so great! I'd like to do that.
