A concrete lectern I have been working on for St Edmunds church in Chingford. I took a few photos early this morning outside the studio before taking it to the church.
A bronze strip is set into the top surface which the church’s Book of Remembrance will rest against. I patinated the bronze to discolour it slightly giving it a worn look. The bronze has a lot of copper in it which is warm against the cool concrete surface.
I will add a few more pictures later of the whole lectern from different angles and closer pictures of the pedestal surface which has an engraved effect and contrasting surfaces.
Installing in the church this morning.
