Memorial sculpture for Highgate Cemetery

20 March, 2016 – 2:01 pm

It is always an honour to be given the responsibility of carving a memorial to help remember a loved one.

This commission is giving me the opportunity to use all of my training as a stonemason, artist, sculptor and letter cutter.

I was asked to design a sculpture memorial incorporating an Art Nouveau style woman. Due to restrictions the stone could be no wider than 14inches.

I decided to use Portland limestone it is excellent for letter cutting and detailed carving. It will show off the curves and form of the dress. Importantly it is a hard durable stone.

Here are the photos showing the design and the starting process.
