Carving 

 

Most of the stonework which Ross produces is essentially “hand carved”. However, the term “carving” generally refers to the more decorative work, which is often not based upon geometry, but crafted by eye.

Stone carving demands an awareness of form as well as an ability to translate observations into the new work. An understanding of architectural styles is also necessary.

As with Masonry, a carving may be part of a new-build project or replicate a weathered piece of ornament that requires replacement.

Carving also includes one off commissions, such as portrait busts, letter-cut memorials or sculpture.
