Black Fox have been up in Edinburgh this week. I noticed a lot of weathervanes, all in this banner style. They all looked like cast iron and like they had been there for a very long time. Many of them don’t have cardinal points (NSEW). Couldn’t get a decent photo myself as the zoom on my camera isn’t good enough but heres some images i found on the Scottish Ironwork website (edit 2019, no longer online).
This week I am going to work on designs for our own banner weathervane, following this traditional idea but adding elements of our own distinctive style.
