Emily Young FRSS

Emily Young is 'Britain's greatest living stone carver' (Financial Times 2015)

Working in the age old tradition of stone carving by hand and bringing a thoroughly contemporary and wide ranging knowledge base, she uses the wild history of the planet to inform her studio work, with some pieces weighing over 20 tons, while some are very tiny.
