We both welcome you to the family run site Matthew Billington DragonStone Carving.
“A stone carver now for over ten years, I have had the opportunity to produce a wide variety of commissions both public and private ranging from 12 foot high art works towering out of parklands to tiny hand held miniatures. My early work was dominated by celtic knotwork and other tribal patterns whilst today my interest lies in human forms, both abstract and realistic.
There is still a tribal feel to recent work and one theme that follows right through is the contrast of polished and natural riven forms. My most enjoyable projects have involved working in schools getting kids designing and carving their own pieces. Big kids, too, have had the opportunity for some carving experience at various festivals and outdoor events. It’s always a pleasure watching someone gaining confidence with a new medium and new skills and producing something they’re really proud of. Being self-taught myself I have no hang-ups about who can or can’t make something beautiful. The only limits on what you can achieve are those you imagine.”
For those who already follow him, you will start to notice some changes over the coming weeks as we work together to update the DragonStone Carving site.”

Special thanks go to the pupils of May Park Primary School for creating designs for the standing stone.
