SCULPTURAL STONE CARVINGS
Iain Cotton studied sculpture at Bath Academy of Art and went on to an apprenticeship in masonry, carving and stone conservation at Nimbus Conservation where he worked as an assistant to stone carver and sculptor Laurence Tyndall.
After Nimbus, he continued as a ‘journeyman’ carver, in the field of stone conservation until 2010, working on projects for English Heritage, The National Trust, and many other public and private clients of historic buildings.
Having worked with the language of stone for thirty years as a sculptor, carver and lettering artist, Iain is concerned with exploring our place in the world through text and carving and with capturing experiences of deep connection with places and nature. Roads, paths, journeys and human marks in the landscape are recurring themes in his work today.
