Have taken delivery this afternoon of two stone pieces that have been beautifully carved by Lucy Cortese. Having seen her work on the television programme 'Home is Where the Art is', my husband and I commissioned her. The first has iconography chosen to represent our family, while the second can best be described 'a bit of madness'. Lucy kept us fully informed during the various stages from the initial sketches, to the final designs. The outcome is two stunning pieces of decorative art that we will enjoy for many years. WONDERFUL!
We would definitely recommend Lucy. We have had several different types of commissioned pieces from Lucy over the years. A Koi carp plaque, a piece dedicated to our wedding with our initials and the wedding date and a memorial vase for our Grandma which was done in memory for what would of been her 100th birthday, making it a very special piece for the family. Each piece has lots of attention to detail and that's why we have kept going back to her. Lucy was very helpful in recommend which stone, and fonts would be best and what painting in the lettering would stand out, and giving out advise on how to look after them. Also Lucy dealt with getting all the legal permission for putting the vase in the churchyard for us. An amazing, talented and lovely person.
