Stone Carver & Letter Cutter
Louis Francis is the owner of Francis Stone Design, a stone art business based in Milton Keynes, providing quality stone craftsmanship and services. Commissions range from memorial headstones; sculpture; house signage and stone conservation. Louis is classically trained in Architectural Stone Carving and has been honing his craft for the last 11 years.
He has worked on a range of private and public commissions, from war memorials to sculptures. His most notable achievement was when he was commissioned by HRH Queen's Fabric Advisory Committee to design and carve a grotesque for St Georges Chapel, Windsor Castle. The grotesque was installed above the main entrance to the chapel and is his most proudest accolade to date.
Louis prides himself on his main specialism, letter cutting, and enjoys working with the medium of welsh slate. He is hoping to run workshops in the near future, teaching individuals to letter cut, after teaching a successful workshop in Summer 2018 which was commissioned by the Clophill Heritage Trust.
