Lettering on stone, slate, wood, engraved glass and paper

A favourite poem, quotation or motto engraved on a glass panel or inscribed on a standing stone, bench or plaque can create a focal point to draw the eye across the garden. It can commemorate a loved one, a pet or a special occasion, celebrate the seasons and the natural world, or just be beautiful in its own right.
