SCOTT TAYLOR stone sculptor
Simple house signs and commemorative plaques in this section suggest the breadth of possibilities. The impact of well designed and crafted signage cannot be underestimated. Handcrafted natural material can provide a long lasting, low maintenance sign of the style and quality that lies within and it can really make an entrance. The growing trend of metal theft and the ability to utilise tough ‘vandal proof’ materials such as granite extend the civic appeal of natural stone.

I have the craft skills and technical knowledge to carve exact copies of original work. It is therefore possible to award a commission for a piece based on an artist’s plaster or clay work and commission a granite plaque rather than a bronze cast. I am happy to work closely with an artist to ensure the work remains true to their concept.

My extensive experience allows me to confidently predict the durability of materials and their suitability to any application. I am also able to provide advice or actually install any type of plaque

The Priests Way. This natural boulder of quarried Wetson Bed Purbeck was carved and engraved to commemorate the restoration of this historical Pilgrim’s path from Swanage to St. Alban Head. The use of computer cut stencil in this instance was unavoidable due to the large number of small letters and budget restraint.
