I love stone.

I love the sound of it under a mallet, the smell when it’s cut, the colour and the texture.

Most of all I love its permanence, millions of years in the making, hundreds perhaps thousands of years in the form it gives me.

I was taught by craftsmen, not artists, men who learned the ways of generations of men before them; taught to know and respect the material, to work it with honesty and a firm hand.

These pages show a little of what I have made during the last ten years; some in response to commission, some simply pieces I needed to make for me.

I hope you see in them, as I do, the spirit that can emanate from such a primal source.

Recently, I have rekindled a love for 2 dimensional imagery, both through drawing and painting, constantly seeking new ways to express my interest in the human spirit and form.
