Heritage Plaques


Art is an Option was asked to design and produce a series of thirty seven Heritage Plaques.

This historic trail is located at various sites to give visitors and locals an insight into Stirling’s historic buildings and places. There are several totally “unique” plaques in the set such as the Stirling Bridge plaque but most conform to a house style which has a common relief image on left hand side of the design which was inspired by one the town seals but have text customised for each historic location.

The plaques are manufactured in caste aluminum with both the lettering and image in relief. The raised surface is highlighted in gold enamel which is set against a coloured background which is stove dried to give the enamels a hardened finish.

The plaques have been designed so they can be fitted sensitively to wall, railings or to free standing lectern as appropriate to each location.
