Star Stone - Market Square Armagh

 

The new StarStone artwork made from Armagh Marble has now been completed in Market Square, Armagh with an official unveiling on 22 June 2011. The installation of StarStone is the culmination of 6 months work by our Company in conjunction with Nottinghamshire artist Richard Perry.  The inspiration for StarStone came from Armagh’s long association with the night sky and the way the Cathedrals seemingly reach for the sky from the hills on which the City was built.  The artwork has a real sense of the ancientness of Armagh using local stone which is already used in the traditional buildings in the City combined with real craftsmanship provided by Armagh Marble.
