Preview of installation at Glasney College
Local craft sculptor Stephane Rouget is currently working on a new feature for Glasney College. The bird bath, being made from Carnsew Granite, will be decorated with carvings representing the storey of Glasney's founding which is deeply intertwined with the natural heritage of the site.
The short video gives a glimpse of the overall design and the methods being used. Installing the crafted piece at the site also serves to acknowledge the skill of the masons involved in building the complex in the 13th century, where carved architectural stones and ornately decorated interior mouldings featured strongly.
Fragments of Beer Stone with floristic patterns excavated from the site, along with many other artefacts and remains from Glasney College can be seen at Penryn Museum.
