A bit of Terracotta

Jude is asking us if we have any terracotta images for this week’s life in colour (orange this month)

So, lets show some from Watt’s chapel in Compton, Surrey. This is the carving on the exterior of the Cemetery Chapel.  The carving was done by Mary Watts, the wife of the Victorian artist George Watts, and local villagers.

The terracotta gives a wonderful warm glow:

  1. Terrific example of carved terracotta.

  2. This is absolutely splendid. Takes decorative terracotta to a whole new level.

  3. That’s beautiful, Sue. Such talented work.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Glad you featured this wonderful place. I still need to go back and find the eagle frieze that I missed!

  5. WOW. That’s more than a bit of terra cotta. Wonderful photos.

  6. You definitely win the prize* for terracotta!

    *Disclaimer. Prize is imaginary only.

  7. This is really different. Is it carved or moulded?

  8. Beautiful! I like the stylized designs and as you said, that warm glow from the terra cotta.
