Lettering in stone can look stunning in a garden setting. Examples of our work include slate obelisks and garden wall plaques. Hand carved lettering in stone can also be used for sundials, bird baths, benches and water features.
A wonderful afternoon spent visiting Pigotts, Eric Gill's former home: a fascinating place steeped in history. I trained under Lida Kindersley, who was married to David Kindersley. He in turn trained under Eric Gill, so my work owes much to Eric Gill's tradition.
This winter I was asked to carve and build an obelisk sundial for Buscot Park to celebrate the diamond jubilee of HM The Queen. But this was no ordinary Egyptian copy. For a start it has 6 sides rather than 4 and its main function is to hold a vertical sundial.
