Inigo Jones commission for the Orwell Society
Inigo Jones are honoured and delighted to have supplied Welsh slate plaques for the Orwell Society.
The printed Welsh slate plaques include a piece of Scottish slate from Barnhill on Jura.Barnhill is the house in which George Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four and was the childhood home of the patron of the Orwell Society, Orwell's son Richard Blair.
When the Orwell Society made its first visit to Barnhill in June 2014 the house was being re roofed and the Fletcher family who rented Barnhill to Orwell, offered pieces of slate from the original roof for use to raise funds for educational bursaries.
Inigo Jones were commissioned to produce slate plaques incorporating these pieces of Scottish slate from the original roof as well as a drawing of Barnhill which was kindly donated by Mark McLaughlin a renowned watercolour painter from South London.
It was hugely admired at the recent AGM in London. This included the two speakers, Alan Johnson MP and Professor Tim Crook of Goldsmiths, London University. Tim said “The Jura/Orwell slate commemoration is sheer genius and a real treasure in the Crook stable.”
John Lloyd of Inigo Jones said " We were delighted and honoured to have supplied The Orwell Society with these Welsh slate plaques especially as they also incorporated Scottish slate in the design"
