Environmentally friendly and sustainable hand carved stone and wood art

R15StoneArt by Ruairi Sweeney (BA Hons, NVQ Level 3 Heritage Stonemasonry).

Reclamation

Within my work, I use mostly British stone, which is reclaimed where possible.

Recycling

I am incredibly passionate about the origins of the stone and wood I use, often down to the particular field.

Reworking

Both wood and stone are shaped by hand, by myself. The wood is sandblasted in preparation and I use tungsten tip chisels and a selection of mallets to shape the stone.
