Welsh slate house sign

This elegant Welsh slate house sign was hand carved by Martin Cook.  You can see many examples of Welsh slate house signs on Martin’s gallery.

Martin likes to hand carve into natural British stone such as Welsh slate, Cumbrian slate, Portland stone and Bath Stone.  Fine hand carved lettering looks beautiful in British slate and will last for many many years.

Martin, a lover of music, says that good lettering has a rhythm like beautiful music.  You can see what he means in the example of a hand carved house sign below.  The lettering seems to flowing together creating a pattern and pace.

A Welsh slate house sign, beautifully designed and hand carved makes a statement on the entrance of your home, reflective your style and personality.
