LETTER CUTTING & DESIGN
Our craftsmen are trained in traditional letter form design, drawing and cutting. Traditional lettering has a long history which has been past down with little change, it requires huge levels of concentration and precision, sadly it is a skill which has diminished greatly in the last 50 years, with laser etched or sandblasted font types used instead. The effect when mechanized templating methods are employed is weaker as light and shadow are not thrown in the same way and the subtle and unique nature of the hand drawn letter is lost. Unique and bespoke decorative and sculptural designs are often developed together with the letter forms as one harmonious creative process, something which is not possible with modern machined lettering methods
At London Wood Carving we understand the strength and significance of the hand drawn and carved letter. We have worked with numerous clients to create personalised memorial and commemorative designs that employ these traditional artisanal techniques.
