Inspired by the collection of Grotesques filling the Monk's Parlour in the crypt area of the Sir John Soane Museum. It was with mixed feelings that Soane watched a rising public fashion for the Gothic style. He designed this playfully sombre space, the Monk's Parlour to satirise this style.
Taken from the beautiful carvings found upon the misericords within the choir stalls of Cartmel Priory. This hand crafted reproduction has been produced from a mould taken directly from the original medieval carving and which captures all the fine detail applied by the master craftsmen that carved these in the middle ages, representing a true piece of England’s long history and heritage.

These reproductions are cast from a resin composite and then stained to give the product all the fine detail, feel and authenticity of the original carving.
