Company completes National Gallery commission
Updated: Jul 16, 2020
The company was recently commissioned to complete a bespoke GRG bulkhead for the National Gallery, London.
After being sent Auto Drawings of the required design, Arial letters were printed out full size and carved out in plaster. Silicon rubber was poured into these carved out letters to produce a single mould for each letter. Each letter was then cast individually in casting plaster before being laid down to a reverse mirror image on the work bench.
Finally, the complete sign was cast in GRG with the plaster cast letters chiselled out carefully to reveal recessed letters in the bulkhead face.
The bulkhead was fixed on site inside the National Gallery to two areas - the Belvedere and Sunley Suites - to a MF metal system with a 18mm WPB ply background.
The client was delighted with the final product, as were we. A truly unique commission handmade and finished to the highest quality.
