lettering arts

I design and cut lettering at all sizes from grave stones to large scale architectural inscriptions

Lettered bench, Trajan style

Most of our contemporary letter styles are descended from the Roman, exemplified by the inscription on Trajans column. I carved this formal design into a bench, using the Trajan style in monogrammatic devices to celebrate a shared wedding anniversary.

The Meadows: Imagine this...

For larger work I use Adobe Illustrator to design letter forms or set out suitable fonts to fit the space and jointing, and a plotter/cutter to make stencils. Setting out this poem for Miller Homes’ new estate at The Meadows, Framwellgate Moor, Co Durham, I worked closely with poet Carolyn Jess-Cooke to adjust line breaks to preserve the meaning.
