Architectural stonemasons cut pieces of rock into accurate shapes by hand and machine and then arrange the resulting stones to form structures. The skilled hand of architectural stonemasons can be seen in everything from commercial buildings to spectacular places of worship likes mosques and cathedrals.
Architectural stonemasons work with natural stone, from granite to marble, creating components, and carving and cutting letters on sites. A high level of skill, patience, creativity, accuracy, and problem solving are required to create beautiful stonework that will last for generations. Deep knowledge of geology, materials, processes, and building methods, new and old, are also crucial.
The work will range from basic places of worship to massive gothic cathedrals, from simple but significant buildings to the grand architectural and secular commercial and municipal buildings that define a country’s heritage. It also includes new buildings, both classical and commercial.
