Pete Graham

Pete Graham is a stone carver and letter cutter whose work marries traditional carving with excellent design skills. As a craftsman with over 20 years experience of 3-d design, Pete is equally adept at recreating historic pieces or making new designs for contemporary settings. He brings his strongly design-led approach to:

  • Historic reproduction and restoration
  • Contemporary and figurative sculpture
  • Lettering for signs, memorials and public art works
  • Garden sculpture in stone and wood

Pete practised as a sculptor and art teacher after graduating in Fine Art from the University of Lancaster. He went on to study architectural stone carving at the City and Guilds of London School of Art, where he won a prestigious commission to design and carve a grotesque for St George’s Chapel at Windsor.  As an experienced teacher, Pete also leads courses and workshops in stone carving.

Working largely to commission, Pete will work closely with the client to develop a design and select materials that ensure each piece complements its setting. He will draw on extensive knowledge of architectural carving and ornament in the design process. Pete also has a deep interest in the history and design of lettering and derives great satisfaction from adapting traditional letter forms and creating new ones to suit a particular design or setting.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 7 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
