What’s your sign?

What's your sign?

The sign that hangs above our front door on Fort St. was done in the 1980s by Jay Unwin, a Victoria born artist. At that time he was working as a shipwright in the dockyards of Victoria and, immediately on finishing our sign, he went to Italy to apprentice in the study of stone carving.

His commissioned public sculptures can be seen at Royal Roads and in front of the Victoria Police Department.

Sadly, Jay died in 1996 at the age of 38.
