Alex’s sculptures are sharp, technical and witty. Using his extensive
knowledge and experience in draughtsmanship, stonemasonry and restoration, Alex creates pieces that are architectural as well as decorative. His works are like forgotten ecclesiastical treasures, infusing the modern with the medieval. This year for on form Alex has created a series of sculptures featuring creatures both living and extinct, dealing variously with the strangeness, familiarity, and fragility of the natural world.

Alex graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge in 2000 and lived in France for eight years before returning to the UK. He specialises in architectural stone carving, stone restoration, statuary and letter cutting. He has restored some of the most prestigious buildings in both the UK and France, including St Paul’s Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament, the Louvre and St Pancras Station. He now works at his studio in Oxford.
