St Paul's Cathedral commissioned world reknown artist, Ed Kluz, to create a bespoke artwork celebrating the forgotten history of St Paul's. As a part of this process, Ed and I had the privilege of being shown around the fascinating hidden parts St Paul's Cathedral, to understand more about the building's history and architecture. A pile of ancient carved stone's caught Ed's eye. We discovered these to be the only surviving remnants of mediaeval Old St Pauls. Ed was inspired to create this classic design, which we nicknamed Old Stones.
Ed Kluz: "The collection of near abstract shapes in the design depict fragments of tracery of a vast gothic window, pieces of Corinthian capitals and a lion's face: glimpses of a forgotten past of this once magnificent building."
We have printed the design on a bag, cushion cover, tea towel, mugs, notebook and pencils. Now you can have a bit of medieval St Paul's to treasure too.
