Baptismal Font, St Andrews Cathedral

The famous Baptismal Font in the interior of St Andrews Cathedral, designed and sculpted by Tim Pomeroy, in 2011. It is carved from Carrara marble with over 166 characters, starting as a 9 x 2 metre-block and was driven on a lorry by Barrattini from Tuscany to Scotland. The finished Baptismal font is 1.25 x 1.25 metres and weighs 4 tonnes.

“Carrara marble is the best marble on the planet. It comes from the Polvaccio Basin where Michelangelo chose the blocks of marble for the Tomb of Pope Julius II and for his masterpiece the Pietà. Canova’s ‘The Three Graces’ was made from the same marble from the same quarry.”

“I was in the area in 2002 for an exhibition where a client asked to commission a marble version of a black bronze work being shown. It was a life-changing moment. I was introduced to the amazing Signore Franco Barrattini who still sources the best marble from the quarry for me today.”
