About Will DaviesWill Davies works in both Stone and Bronze, his work ranges from portraiture, animal sculpture, letterforms, abstract sculpture and draughtsmanship. Each discipline informing the other intrinsically, and the variety aiding in the creative process.
Will`s training and work as a stone mason has taken him to sites in England, Cornwall, Devon, Scotland, France and Spain, and has formed his skills with the mallet and chisel. After 10 years of work experience with stone he is now working on a commission basis, and building up a body of work to exhibit, with the end goal of making work for himself to sell at exhibition.
Although he is only 2 years on his new path, he has already provided works for The Royal Household, The Palace of Westminster, The U.S. Embassy, The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust and The Worshipful Company of Masons
