Private House, Denver, Colorado, USA
Carved in limestone, this piece of carving adorns the spandrels of an archway to the kitchen of a family home in Denver.

The instructions were to carve 'Horns of cornicopia spilling with the fruits (and vegetables) of Denver'.

The first exercise during this commission was to visit the local supermarket to purchase the relevant vegetables to be used as models for the carving!

Work was completed at and for the studios of Master Carver Nicholas Fairplay of Fairplay Stonecarvers, Oberlin, Ohio, USA.
