Portland Stone, particularly the Basebed, is a fine grained Limestone that is relatively easily worked and this has therefore encouraged its use for Sculptures, Headstones and other ornate uses.
We particularly encourage sculptors to visit the quarry and select the actual block from the quarry stock.
We recommend that a NAMM member is contacted to advise on the process.
It is important that the base or supporting structure is properly constructed to take the weight of the stone.
The stone will not require cleaning to safeguard its durability; cleaning is purely a cosmetic requirement.
