Fiona & Alec Peever Lettering & Scuplture

New hand carved stone memorials

A memorial need not be a headstone or plaque - we were commissioned to make this new stone vase for flowers as a unique and special tribute to a Churchwarden. Alec shaped the limestone by hand and carved the design and lettering boldly, to make a beautifully textured tactile form.

Hand carved Memorial Headstone with sculpture detail

Alec has just completed this beautiful memorial headstone. He carved the lettering by hand into a large slab of Hornton stone - a gorgeous mottled blue green grey coloured stone quarried near Banbury. The cross and initials were gilded with 22ct gold leaf and a small salamander was carved creeping up the side of the stone, chosen as a specially significant symbol for the family.

On the day that Alec installed the headstone in the Churchyard, he found a small live salamander creature as he prepared the ground.

Alec visited the memorial park in Wantage, Oxfordshire, along with Trustees, to give advice on the upkeep of his stone sculptures with lettercutting - poetry in the landscape memorial tribute to John Betjeman.

This beautiful park close to John Betjeman's former home in Wantage, is a celebration of the life and work of the poet. Alec's stone sculptures are a delight to discover in the natural woodland surroundings.
