London Stone Carving are a small multi-award winning team of highly skilled, experienced and qualified craftsmen, operating from a fully equipped workshop in Central London.
At London Stone Carving we are proud to be described as Master Craftsmen and producing stone work of the highest quality.
Our entire team hold diplomas in Historic Stone Carving from the City and Guilds of London Art School, an institution with international recognition as one of the few remaining to offer the extensive traditional training to become highly skilled stone sculptor/carvers.
Our team are qualified masons and architectural conservators holding degrees in Conservation and Fine Art Sculpture. Each member of our team has broad and extensive experience in fine art sculpture, restoration and conservation.
Our profession requires a strong understanding of stone masonry, architecture and art history, and an aptitude in traditional drawing, clay modelling, ornamental styles, and anatomical study.
Approach and philosophy
The capacity to accurately reproduce is as essential as the ability to re-design and re-interpret. These skills in combination with highly developed draughtsmanship and sculptural skills, allow work to be produced expertly and sympathetically within the context of historic restoration and new build. Our team employs both traditional techniques and modern methods to produce work efficiently, competitively and to the highest standard.
Our team’s broad and specialist skill sets mean projects can be organised to maximise each member’s input; responsibility for each aspect is delegated according to our specific strengths and all work is scrutinised and approved by the entire team before being released from our workshop.
I would have no hesitation in recommending London Stone Carving, a team who provide work of the highest standard. The team are all talented carvers & modellers, their coming together bodes well for the future
The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) supports craftspeople who endeavour to sustain craftsmanship within the United Kingdom. We are proud to have awarded scholarships to Tom Brown and Tom Nicholls of London Stone Carving, two highly skilled QEST Scholars, dedicated to their craft.
These sculptures are full of imagination, wit and intelligence; they are little works of art absolutely in the spirit of the mediaeval originals
I came across the guys at LSC when looking for finials. Turns out it’s not easy to find finials, particularly if you have in mind anything other than globes, pineapples or lions! From start to finish the team were responsive and highly creative. I felt involved in the design process and was encouraged to be so. The pieces as installed look marvellous. I highly recommend them. Since the sculptures have gone up, a Bittern was heard booming in the marsh opposite for the first time in 9 years, So they have truly brought back the nature!
