In the Summer of 2014, Geraint Davies made a beautiful headstone for the grave of my husband David Bowles. He carved a perfect low-relief version of the Green Man head that was David’s signature piece, and below that, he cut the lettering showing his name, dates, and a blessing, all in mellow York Stone. The lettering is delicate and fine, giving the Green Man Roundel a prominent position. My family and I are very pleased with, and impressed by the quality of Geraint’s work, including the dedication he put into faithfully reproducing the carved image, and the way he involved us at every stage of the process. I recommend Geraint Davies as Artist, Sculptor, Stone Cutter, Calligrapher and Mason, as his skills encompass all of these forms. His level of commitment and devotion to excellence, are rare and wonderful qualities, along with his ability to relate to clients needs with sensitivity and intelligence, all contribute to the high quality of his work.
