Artwork for Caitriona Cartwright
Welsh slate birdbath 'gentle-quiet'
Welsh slate umbellifer standing stone
Tredomen standing stone
I work in indigenous stone from mostly local quarries to carve standing stones, birdbaths and benches with snippets of poetry
Carving in stone means that I can work with my hands to combine my love of words with my love of letterforms. It means that I can visit small quarries in remote and beautiful landscapes to source the stone and let my imagination roam free.
