Ian Newton

I have worked with stone for over thirty years; from drystone dyking and general masonry, through cathedral restoration and sculpture, to my present work as a carver.

Creating memorials suits me well as I have a deep personal understanding of bereavement. I find it an immense privilege to work with individuals and families to design a fitting memorial for their loved one. I love the power and beauty of words and poetry. Creating unique memorials combining evocative text and beautiful stone is important work for me.
