About Kerrie Owens, Lapidary Carver

I am a Lapidary artist (stone carver), I also use this method with wood, fossil and shell.  If possible I prefer to use reclaimed, second hand, beach combed and sustainable materials, and slowly working on my ethics with in the stone area, trying to slowly find direct links to mines and collectors. I am also a metal caster specialising in sterling silver in delft clay using fossils as the original mold.
