Town and Village Signage
Each community enjoys its own unique characteristics, which may be reflected in the display of an individually designed hand carved sign.
The creation of a town or village sign is often a collaborative project, drawing on the knowledge and ideas of the people most acquainted with the history and character of their community. This may involve the depiction of historical elements, or buildings and places of importance to the area. So we liase as fully as possible with committees and individuals, taking inspiration from local knowledge, and advising on the most appropriate way of portraying the images chosen for maximum effect.
When the design is finalised, our carving skills will ensure the production of a top quality sign that will add a touch of distinction to your community. It may be in the form of a single or double sided relief carving, or in sculptural form 'in the round' for a spectacular display, and may be enhanced by a durable painted finish, perhaps highlighted with gilded elements. Shown here are examples of these options.
Where necessary, we will arrange the erection of the sign, using a substantial oak post or, for optimum security, steel RSJ clad with wood.
