Garden Sculpture

Enhancing your garden with stone

One of the great things about working with stone is the variety of work that’s possible. We can produce anything from water-features, sculpture, through to letter carving. This is a very bespoke service which gives you a unique, hand-made centre-piece or objet d’art to adorn your garden.

Some of my favourite garden projects

I was involved in the making of this water fountain about 20 years ago. It’s in Bath stone and the masonry had to be 100% precise. The client was extremely pleased.

I was also commissioned to produce a Green Man – these are proving very popular at the moment.

Plaques can be inserted  with relief carvings onto retaining walls, such as this wyvern.

Or if the Arts and Crafts movement is your thing, I produced some relief carvings inspired by the tile designs of William de Morgan. These could be inserted randomly on a tiled wall for instance.

I can also produce letter carving to suit any size or design, on sandstone, limestone and slate:

Sculpture is of course the ultimate statement in any garden, and can provide a centre-piece. I’ve also repaired statues as well. Here are a pair of hands I carved in marble for a long-suffering statue in Letchworth.

This is probably my most distinguished piece of sculpture – Transfigured Christ.

And here are a pair of capitals based on the drawings of Pugin’s father from his journeys in France and Flanders.

Testimonials

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.
