Richard Klose

Full and careful consideration is given to every commission I undertake. The process of commissioning is flexible and, where possible can be adapted to meet the timetable and other requirements of the client.

Their ideas about the design of the piece, whether sketchy or detailed, will be fully taken into account and indeed communication is welcomed throughout the process.  Once the design has been agreed it will be drawn onto the stone and shown to the client, either via a posted or emailed photo, or by the client visiting the workshop.  Then, on work in being completed, I will fix the stone myself in its final place thus ensuring complete continuity and consistent quality from start to finish.

Making a hand cut memorial is necessarily a slow process but it is this time spent that allows for proper attention to be paid to every detail and thereby, the creation of a unique and fitting memorial.
