Galleries: Lettering

I find traditional V-cut lettering to be both a delight and a discipline. The clarity and elegance of the original Roman Trajan script is the source and inspiration for my own practice. These qualities I try to carry into each piece of lettering whether it be inscription, headstone or house sign. The light which is caught by the central valley and animates the carving also picks out any flaw, so accuracy is a must.

Surrounded on all sides as we are, by aggressive signage, clamouring for attention, a well-crafted carved script still manages to draw the eye, and hold it.
