Chris trained at Shrewsbury then Wolverhampton Art colleges for 3 years. He was initially drawn to glass work but soon discovered a love of working with stone. He went on to do an in-house masonry apprenticeship with mason Rob Maxfield Stone in Shropshire. He is currently working on a large project at Hampton Court Herefordshire.

The quarries at Hollington produce the notable pink-red and white “Hollington stone” – a type of sandstone which has been used for centuries in the construction of churches and stately homes. It was used for the construction of the new Coventry Cathedral in the 1950s.
