Statement

Simon Burns-Cox has been working with Stone and Marble for a long time . He particularly enjoys the discipline of Lettering and has an abiding admiration for Eric Gill, the acknowledged master of that craft.
He loves working with Marble because of its texture and the potential of its many veins and colours. Although many of his pieces are abstractions, they have their origins in natural forms. They are domestic in scale and personality, designed not to shock but to please, to be nice to live with. He wants people to handle them, to look closely, and to be reminded of hidden things in the world around them.
