Stone Carving

Stone Carving

Older than any civilization, stone carving is without doubt the oldest form of any artwork known to mankind with evidence dating back thousands of years. Examples of labyrinth style patterns and abstract symbols carved into rocks and cave walls are the earliest known to mankind and these are called ‘petroglyphs’. Also artefacts carved out of stone in the form of small figurines are believed to date back to 230,000 years! So important is the craft of the stonemason that archaeologists and historians alike use stone carvings to date periods in human history even when civilizations disappeared long ago. We are by no means the Michael Angelo’s of this world, so you won’t get any fancy works of art from us, we’ll just leave that to the sculptors and artists to create, but we do cut and dress stone. We cut, shape and dress quoins, lintels, sills, arches and even stones with names and dates on them. Most of our work is carried out on site using traditional methods and by clicking on an image below it will give you a brief detail of our stone carving and where relevant, take you to our main page showing where those examples were used.
