Stone etchings and carvings made by
I keep a fairly wide range of natural stones to use . I also keep natural, rivened and polished slate and some polished french limestone and local sandstone. I can usually find a suitable stone for any commission or order but also welcome the customer supplying the stone. The natural stones are usually kept for a year before use so any tendancy to split, e.g. in frost etc, will become apparent in this time. In the unusual event of a split I will replace the piece on another similar stone.
Where painted I use enamels to give maximum possible durability which will usually take several years of weathering, however I advise customers who keep stones outside to cover or wrap them in a cover during extreme conditions or better still, bring them inside at these times.
Order turnaround time:
This obviously depends on the size and complexity of a piece but usually I can supply a finished work within 2-3 weeks. A more reliable estimate is given for any orders.
