Two gargoyles ready for glaze application before kiln firing.
These are just two of around 1500 replacement terra cotta stones for the repair of Christa McAuliffe Intermediate School 187 in Brooklyn.
Shaws of Darwen are supplying replacement gargoyles, along with new medallions, copings and cills as part of an ongoing refurbishment program. Our New York-based survey team worked closely with the contractor, providing drawings for the factory who slip-cast each piece ensuring consistency of materials and dimensions.
