With a talent for art, and a passion for history it made sense for Mark Whyman to take up an apprenticeship in stonemasonry.
He initially specialised in architectural restoration, experiencing the history and developing the traditional skills and techniques essential to producing proportionally accurate and aesthetically pleasing architectural features.
English stonemason Mark is still passionate about his craft, even after 30 years in the trade.
Working from his studio in west Auckland, NZ.
All the fire surrounds are laid out before leaving the studio to ensure an excellent fit and to minimise on site disruption
