Steve Roche

Stonemason and Letter Carver

Hello there, 

My name is Steve Roche, I am a Letter Carver and Stonemason specialising in outdoor public sculpture projects and hand carved inscriptions. 

I create engaging and tactile public sculpture projects in stone at my workshop in Sheffield.

My specialism also includes hand-cut letters, contemporary calligraphy and the design and setting out of bespoke inscriptions.

I work closely with businesses to guide them through specific planning conditions related to Public Art and help create iconic pieces which add character to new developments and civic projects.
