PETER MARTIN

I am a self-taught sculptor who gave up computer programming eight years ago to take up sculpture full-time. To improve my stone carving techniques
I took the course in architectural stone carving, lettercutting and masonry at Weymouth College where I was trained by experienced carvers and
masons. I also carve wood and have fulfilled a number of commissions for carved benches as well as artwork. Recent work includes commissions
from Eden Project Cornwall, Newquay Town Council, Kerrier District Council and various local re-generation groups. This has involved close liaison
with local community groups and schools to produce designs for the completed works.
