Staffs saint - by Staffs sculptor

Statue of St Bertram

Saint Bertram was a Staffordshire saint and hermit, so it's fitting that he has been sculpted by a Staffordshire artist.   Harry Everington co-founded the short-lived Frink School of Sculpture, which was based in Stoke-on-Trent, in the 1990s.

This work by Everington can be found in St Bartholomew Church at Longnor.  Tradition has it that St Bertram founded a church at Longor in the eight century.

  1. Interesting work. It reminds me of some of the carving work done here by Inuit sculptors.
