Letter Cutting, Stone Carving & Ceramics
Hello, I’m Phil, a letter cutter and stone carver formerly based in Somerset, now relocated to Dorset.
Welcome to my stonecarving website.
By way of brief introduction, being a stone carver is the latest stage of development in
my life as a creative person.
What I appreciate about stonecarving is the way in which it slows down my working pace to a level where the creative process becomes almost meditative; the stone seems to know what it wants to become, and it just needs me as an artist/conduit to reveal the nature and beauty of the form awaiting within. It’s an intriguing and satisfying interaction!
I am now letter cutting and carving in stone, but I have also been a ceramic artist, technician, potter, teacher, and (going back a bit now) an art student. These days I still think of myself as an artist in other media too so I draw, paint, use digital media, and make or appreciate music whenever the opportunity arises; I am now really appreciating my larger studio space in Symondsbury, Dorset, where I can readily immerse myself in such activities.
