ABOUT 

Architectural fragment of Coade. First marketed at the turn of the 1770's, Coade stone was a remarkable new building material. Using a recipe which was not fully understood until the 1990's, its makers claimed to have produced the first ever ‘artificial stone’. Tough and hard-wearing, it offered new opportunities for fine-detailed decoration. Just as extraordinary as the stone was the person who sold it, Eleanor Coade, one of the few women to be acknowledged as a major influence on eighteenth century architecture.
