Project Information

The Combe Down Stones were taken from the Combe Down quarry located outside bath and are covered with graffiti from the mine. Some of the pieces were cracked and fractured, making them vulnerable to loss and further damage.

Small channels were cut into the back of the stone and 316 stainless steel dowels were mortared into the holes.

In order to preserve the graffiti during the structural repairs a layer of japanese tissue was applied to the surface and held there using Cyclododecane (CDD) wax.

Stainless steel frames were fabricated in order to house and display the stones.
