Building a Stone Circle

Over the last couple of months I had a dream come true of a project to work on; to arrange, plan and build a stone circle in Dorset. The reason for this was for a new set of perfumes by Simon Constantine for Gorilla perfumes. Simon created six new scents, collectively called set in stone. The plan was to build a stone circle in an area of Dorset that contained many o the raw materials used as possible, and that each stone would represent one of the perfumes. Then at the launch there would be live music, again one separate track for each perfume as well as talks from Simon as well as the very brilliant Paul Devereux. Below are photos of the build which was marked out by myself and Steve Brackstone, with the stones supplied and the circle built by Suttles, a local Purbeck stone company. Advice of the shape of the circle and it's positioning and the choosing of the stones was also contributed to by the archeologist Julian Richards. I will be posting photos and a video from the event itself soon. The stone circle will be remaining at this site for future generations to use and enjoy.

I joined them with some friends for the Saturday, beginning with Michael performing a Plough Jag play in the center of the circle, using us to replace missing and fallen stones, and to get right into his Avebury theories, which literally we're brought to life from the pages of Michael himself. An added bonus and great honor for me was to help Michael by becoming one of his Bulls, along with another game chap. OK, so maybe I felt a slight twinge of embarrassment initially while putting on this cardboard mask but this was Michael dames, and he neded b…
