Hand Carved Memorials & Headstones
Gary Newton is based in Canterbury, Kent, and has been designing and carving memorials by hand in stone and wood for 30 years. He has been a member of Memorials By Artists (now called the Lettering Arts Trust) since 1988. All design, masonry, carving and installation is carried out in-house, ensuring that every commission is unique, to produce beautifully-crafted, individual pieces.
Gary specialises in concept development, design and production, using his expertise in art and design to draw and carve exquisite decorative motifs. He is a qualified stone mason, and in addition to memorial work he is involved in the repair and conservation of historic buildings.
This other facet to the work naturally influences the memorial designs, which have a distinct architectural feel, and often include Romanesque decoration and embellishment. All design, masonry, carving and installation is carried out in-house.
