Introduction to Claire Mason

Claire Mason has been stone carving for many years since leaving Art College. She qualified in Carving and Gilding at the London College of Furniture and began designing and making pieces to commission. Claire currently carves unique pieces of sculpture for the garden as well as working to commission. She uses traditional methods of carving; using a mallet and chisel, to produce a unique piece of work for each of her clients. She can work in mixed mediums that include stone, slate and bronze, applying her skills to produce a range of work; garden sculpture, bronze sculpture, beautiful memorial headstones, creative letter carving, inscriptions, unusual gifts and signs.

Claire has exhibited locally for a number of years in the Hampshire Artist Exhibition and has been selected to exhibit her sculptures in the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens near Romsey, Hampshire, as part of the 'Art in the Garden' exhibition. Claire also runs beginners stone carving weekend classes in the beautiful location of Old Bursledon, Hampshire.

The Commissioning Process

Claire enjoys working closely with her clients. She will usually meet with you to leisurely gather and develop your ideas. Your individual design is hand drawn on her drawing board, for you to add to or amend if you wish. She then transfers the design onto the stone and begins carving with mallets and chisels. Claire can meet with you in stages and will keep you informed along the way.
