& - Part 2: Ampercrete

Last Christmas I was suffering from a severe and life threatening case of ‘not having made anything real with my hands for ages’. So I thought I’d make a concrete ampersand. Because I like ampersands a lot and I’d never done anything with concrete except complain about its use in modern architecture.

That’s it really, not very complex. The ampersand is Interstate by the always marvellous Hoefler & Frere-Jones in case you’re interested. And now I have a 32 kilo paperweight in my garden.
