SEA LIFE PROJECT, ISLE OF PURBECK

Carlotta drawing wave with Scott Taylor

Lovell Stone Group are delighted to be donating the Portland Stone, sawn six sides, required for the Sea Life project in Swanage. The project, which is being coordinated by Carlotta Barrow, aims to combine history with the natural world. In addition to teaching a group of young people from The Swanage School the ancient skill of stone carving, they will also have the opportunity to research and learn about prehistoric and present-day marine creatures and plant life. Their carvings will then be incorporated into a wave effect that will form the back of an existing stone seat on the Jurassic Coast path.

Carlotta is passionate about keeping the ancient trades of quarrying and carving alive in Purbeck and is the creator of The Swanage Seen Arts Trail and Swanage and Purbeck Sculpture Trail
