A passion for natural stone
It’s very simple, I love what I do. I work with natural stone. Sourcing it, designing items from it, supplying it, repairing it, maintaining it and most of all appreciating it. In all its forms, granite, limestone, sandstone, marble, semi-precious, the echoes of creation and the effects of ‘The Flood’ are a continual source of amazement to me.
I enjoy working in the relaxed atmosphere with church property committees conserving the fabric of the church building for generations to come, in the most sympathic way possible. I‘m also at home in the London and South East England market, restoring marble and semi-precious stones for some very distinguished clients along with Hotel Technical Directors, restoring stone to its natural beauty.
However, I’m always the happiest when I’m challenged to solve another stone related problem, whether it be contractual, restorative or design.
