CREATING BEAUTIFUL AND
BESPOKE PIECES IN STONE
MEMORIAL MASONRY &
Dating back to prehistoric times, the oldest known works of representational art are stone carvings whilst the ancient art of carving letters into stone to create a permanent record is as old as writing itself. A precise and patient discipline, there is something quite magical about seeing words and thoughts so enduringly and literally 'set in stone'.
