A memorial, a commemoration of a person’s life, is the most challenging dedication to create. The words and design need to be precisely balanced, fashioning a memorial which is strong, dignified and simple. It must be an eternal testimony, lasting for hundreds of years, while blending with its surroundings from the moment of placement. My hand carved memorials are individually commissioned so that each one is unique.
This piece will often take the form of a headstone or memorial stone such as a cremation tablet. Sometimes, however, a particularly distinctive memorial is required. A commemorative plaque, a stone bench, an obelisk or monolith are all possible ways to remember, honour and celebrate a person’s life.
