Memorials

My approach to designing and creating a memorial is primarily to celebrate the life of the person being commemorated.

With an individually designed memorial the combination of each element, the material, its shape, letter forms and any relief carving all working together in expressing the unique essence of that person.

Collaboration - Designing and the creating of a memorial is an evolutionary process. Understanding a clients wishes is vital and this can only be achieved through working together. The process helping to clarify a clients vision and achieve a mutually satisfying design.

Design - From initial sketched ideas through to the final design proposal pencil and paper are my preferred medium. The spirit of a design is underpinned by the drawing process. The act of drawing being akin to the act of carving, -pencil-paper-chisel-stone-

Stone - With it being a natural material each piece is individual whether Limestone, Sandstone or Slate its markings and textures are always varied, its innate qualities always a consideration throughout the designing and carving process. The stones beauty being integrated into the expressive qualities of each piece.

Price of commissioning - Each commission is individual. Each situation is different, along with considerations of type of stone the amount of lettering and carving etc all being variable factors, so there is no fixed price. However, as a guide the cost of a memorial will usually be between £2,500 - £5000 .This would include delivery and fixing. An accurate quote for a project including delivery and fixing is provided with submission of a design proposal.
