Stone Art Cotswold Ltd

I trained in traditional stonemasonry for over a decade in France and am experienced in restoration work and all kinds of stone carving and architectural features. Recent projects include Owlpen Manor and Rodborough Fort, as well as private work. My work is excellent and will last a lifetime.

About Stone Art Cotswold Ltd

In 1998 I began my apprenticeship with ACRP in Provence, training also with the Compagnon du Devoir, the major guild of craftsmen and master masons in France. I learnt my skills by moving from site to site and being taught by different Masters, as is the tradition in France.
After being a journeyman for the best part of a decade, I founded Stone Art Cotswold in 2010. I have worked on many prestigious projects including Strasbourg Cathedral, Gloucester Cathedral, Owlpen Manor and many of the traditional buildings in the Cotswold area.
My team and I always use traditional methods, including lime mortar rather than cement, meaning that your project will not only look authentic but will last for centuries to come. We offer a complete service, from design to carving to fixing, and can also supply a range of high-quality stones from 60 quarries in Europe, to ensure that your finished project is exactly as you want it to be.
We also offer stone carving, letter carving and sculpture, for example statues, urns, memorials and fireplaces.

  • Repair/Repoint cotswold stone wall and window sill

    Excellent, clean work. Sebastian gave a transparent quote from the outset and the standard of his work was exceptional. I will definitely be using him again.

  • Georgian kitchen fireplace

    Absolutely delighted with the results of the restoration of our fireplace - it was in a very poor state of repair and Sebastien had to apply several techniques to bring it back to life and stabilise it for the future. Will definitely call on his services again and would highly recommend him to others.
