Superego or bust

Haddonstone, the firm more likely to rustle you up a quick classical portico in its cast stone, is carving a niche into the busts of classical antiquity – yours at a fraction of the cost of the originals. Of interest to architects will be the stone busts of Inigo Jones and Capability Brown – both coming in at under £400. Given the legendary size of architects’ egos, PIP’s wondering if acquiring 3D printing capabilities at the plant could see the firm’s bust business blossom?
