Traditional hand skills in the cutting and carving of stone
Traditional hand skills in the cutting and carving of stone are core to the services I offer my clients. This is teamed with an understanding of historic building construction techniques and a passion for architecture and design.
I work closely with my clients to create works in stone that are fitting and appropriate for the project. I have experience working for churches, Sheffield Cathedral, theatres, town halls, hotels, major house builders and private households.
Setting an inscription out by hand and traditional V-cut lettering is the core of the bespoke service I offer my clients.
I cut inscriptions into a range of different native stones in many different styles; from formal Roman capitals to flourished letters.
Standing Stones make an interesting focal point in any setting they are placed, especially when they bear a message. House numbers, cottage names and commemorative date stones can be securely fastened to walls and entrance ways.
Headstones and Memorials
Commissioning a piece of work is very straightforward. My work is always undertaken to a high level of finish and with the highest regard to the historic or personal significance it may have.
Installing a headstone is an important part of the process. I work to the National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM) code of practice.
