2014 RSST Volunteer Awards

2014 RSST  Volunteer Awards

This year I have again designed and produced the RSST Volunteer Awards.

The eight awards were presented at Warwick Hall near Carlisle on 10th July, along with the major award;  the David Stapleford Award, which was presented to Dr Raj Jones.

After sculpting the originals in wax and taking  moulds, I then cast each  plaque (in my coal shed) in cold-cast copper. After polishing and finishing they were then mounted on a wedge of Cumbrian stone cut at the quarry just down the road from me.

The words ‘Red Squirrel’ , ‘Sciurus Vulgaris’ and ‘animal which sits in the shadow of it’s tail,’ were inscribed around the outside. ‘Sciurus’ orininates from the Greek ‘Skiouros’ meaning ‘shade tail’.
