Letter Cutting
 
 
 
 
                              Bespoke inscription in stone.
                        This shows a commission for a new gallery, ‘Artsbank.
The finished stone in Dunhouse Buff - a tightly grained sandstone from Staindrop Quarry Barnard Castle.
 After consultation with the client regarding design and type of stone, work begins on drawing the text directly upon the surface of the chosen material.    
Some other examples of my work in marble, portland stone and slate.
The inscription slowly emerges from the stone by the traditional method of direct carving with chisel and mallet.
