Stonecarving, Letter Cutting & Ceramics



PhiL Brown - Thursday, September 29, 2016

'BLADES' is a house name in Portland Stone 15" x 8", completed at the end of September 2016. My clients wanted it illustrated to avoid any confusion or 
connection with sharp objects, hence the relief carving of blades and seeds of grass creating a composition alongside the incised carving of the house name itself.

'Juniper Lodge', a house name in slate 16" x 10", is shown in finished form (no in-painting required, so you really are looking 
at what me and the chisel(s) achieved). 


Phil Brown


Letter Cutting, Stone Carving & Ceramics


Hello, I'm Phil, a letter cutter and stone carver formerly based in Somerset, now relocated to Dorset.


Welcome to my stonecarving website.


By way of brief introduction, being a stone carver is the latest stage of development in

my life as a creative person.


What I appreciate about stonecarving is the way in which it slows down my working pace to a level where the creative process becomes almost meditative; the stone seems to know what it wants to become, and it just needs me as an artist/conduit to reveal the nature and beauty of the form awaiting within. It's an intriguing and satisfying interaction!


I am now letter cutting and carving in stone, but I have also been a ceramic artist, technician, potter, teacher, and (going back a bit now) an art student. These days I still think of myself as an artist in other media too so I draw, paint, use digital media, and make or appreciate music whenever the opportunity arises; I am now really appreciating my larger studio space in Symondsbury, Dorset, where I can readily immerse myself in such activities.

Please enjoy your visit to Phil Brown The Artist; you will find   garden ceramics for sale as well as letter cutting, and   stone carvings  or sale and to commission.
