Cast Stone at Tate Britain

Inspired by a Barbara Hepworth textile design, the concept for this unique modular design comes from Rosie Irving, who involved United Kingdom Cast Stone Association member Haddonstone to transformed the design into a three dimensional cast stone form for use initially as part of the Chelsea Fringe, before being moved to a permanent display at Tate Britain.
The modular shapes have been cast by Haddonstone in their Portland and Slate TecStone cast stone colour finishes to create the contrasting black and white colours displayed in the original Barbara Hepworth textile design.
See the UKCSA web site projects pages for more details.
