Stone Ornaments and Letter Cutting
Stone Garden Ornaments
We design and create a wide range of bespoke stone features including tables from granite, marble, sandstone and limestone as well as stone benches, seats, tables and chairs.
Our stone furniture weathers beautifully, so it can be left outdoors all year round adding character to any garden or public space. Styles vary from the classical to contemporary and so it is entirely possible to choose an ornament that enhances a current garden theme.
Saxum Stonemasons also carry out repairs to existing Stone or cast garden features which may have suffered from frost damage, cracking or general damage. It is usually possible to repair features on site. If there are pieces missing then our skilled craftsmen can re-create the missing sections to restore an item to it’s original profile.
Previous projects include stone bird baths, wishing wells, sculptures, sundials, stone statues, steps, pedestals, planters and water features.
Our team of craftsmen create a variety of hand cut letters from miniature memorials to large place names using slate, marble, granite, limestone and sandstone. Each piece is uniquely designed to meet your requirements, budget and taste and can left plain, painted and also filled to create greater contrast. Our stone carving and letter cutting is both unique and functional making it the perfect centrepiece for your home, business and public spaces.
Stone Carving Courses
2023 will be the fourteenth season of stone carving courses run by master mason Chris Pellett at his home workshop in rural Whitesmith near Lewes in Sussex.
Working in stone courses are fun, fulfilling and just a little bit different. Whether you want to try something completely new or develop your existing skills, we have a range of courses available to suit all ages, abilities and objectives.
With small group sizes you will receive in-depth tuition, advice and guidance.
Chris Pellett has over forty years’ experience in stone carving. His relaxed, encouraging and enthusiastic style make the weekends suitable for all ages from 11 – 91.
All of the courses include the stone, use of the tools and plenty of encouragement as well as a tasty light lunch and delicious homemade cake.
The courses can be tailored to suit your needs and support whatever project you’d like to work on so if you have any questions please contact us for more details.

Sculpture and Letter Cutting
Our sculptor is highly trained to model in clay and carve stone. He has experience in Classical, Gothic and other historic styles as well as more contemporary designs. We also design, hand draw and carve letters in stone both in traditional and artistic styles.
We are very pleased with the repair to our old stone fountain. Despite searching for a long time to find someone willing to try to repair the very badly damaged fountain at a reasonable cost. We were extremely impressed by the highly skilled work completed when others had told us it was beyond repair, and could only be replaced. Missing pieces were recreated and the final effect was outstanding. We have no hesitation in recommending the work of Saxum Stonemasons.
