When you choose Artisan Memorials to create your bespoke headstone, you are choosing our expert calligrapher and stonemason, Mark Brooks. With over 30 years of experience as a lettering expert and monumental mason, Mark has mastered the art of calligraphy and deep V-carving, a time-honoured technique which produces elegant and highly-detailed results, no matter what design you choose.
The words that we choose to mark the passing of our loved ones are extremely important to us. It’s fitting, therefore, to choose the most authentic method to engrave them with. Our skilled stonemason, with his artistic eye, can appreciate aesthetics and judge spacing in a way that a computer simply can’t, meaning that the true beauty of your chosen words will manifest on the stone.
While sandblasting is a common method for memorial lettering, we firmly believe that, to achieve a truly high-end finish, deep V-carving should be used. It’s Mark’s knowledge of this technique that allows us to create premium memorials at reasonable prices.
But Mark is never without help. The Artisan Memorials team has collected a vast bank of knowledge over the years, meaning that we’re able to assist you in every way possible throughout the design process. From the explanation of the properties of key materials to letterform and layout suggestions, we will do everything we can to ensure that the uniqueness of your loved one’s life is captured completely in the design of the gravestone.
