Giles Macdonald

I design and make letters for a range of purposes – memorials, lettering for buildings and pavements, inscriptions to commemorate events; plaques, tablets and public art. I carve stone and slate and design letters for metal, wood and other materials. Each piece of work is the result of a sharing of ideas and possibilities. I try to make each inscription visually attractive using strong letterforms and sensitive design. I work in north Oxfordshire and on site throughout the UK. Visitors are always welcome to visit the workshop to see work in progress, and to discuss possible ideas. I read Ancient History in St Andrews and studied stone carving at Bath College. I’ve been awarded a Crafts Council Development Award and exhibit regularly.
