London Stone Carving are a small multi-award winning team of expertly skilled, experienced & qualified craftsmen in stone, operating from a fully equipped workshop in Central London.

At London Stone Carving we are proud to be described as Master Craftsmen, producing timeless 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 internationally recognised as one of the few remaining institutions offering the training required to master the craft of stone sculpting.

Our team are qualified masons, artists, architectural conservators & educators holding degrees in Architectural Conservation, Fine Art Sculpture & Education. Collectively our team possesses a thorough, broad & deep knowledge of stone craft, historic architecture, art history, ornamental styles, fine art sculpture & anatomical study, as well as possessing exceptionally strong traditional drawing & clay working skills.

The use of sculptural stone in contemporary architectural and artistic endeavors is hugely underrepresented. London Stone Carving strives to raise the profile of our craft through excellence, promoting, developing and teaching our art form so that our ancient craft can continue to develop and thrive.

Approach & philosophy

The capacity to accurately reproduce, re-design & re-interpret is essential, allowing work to be produced expertly & sympathetically within contexts of historic restoration as well as contemporary modern fabrication.  Our team employs traditional techniques alongside cutting edge methods, producing work efficiently and competitively to the highest standard.

Our broad specialist skill sets allow projects to be executed to maximise each member’s input.  Responsibility for each aspect of a given project is delegated according to our specific strengths with all work exhaustively scrutinised by our team before being released from our workshop.

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!
