Sam the Carver

Written by LAF on .

We went to visit Sam who is a carver yesterday. He lives in an unremarkable street, in a terraced house which from the outside looks ordinary. But inside the house is another story as every room has a different pattern of Maltese tiles laid. Here are a couple of photos of the tiles. I really love them, many of the older houses have these tiles, they have so much more personality than their modern counterparts.

We went up onto to the roof, it was like climbing to a different world. Here he spends much of his days carving from blocks of limestone and making things out of gypsum, he has created intricate and delicate cities of stone. We left him sitting in the sun, smiling and carving out his own special world.
