Limestone Bowls

Hand carved Limestone Bowls

Sonia carves these stone panels and bowls using Irish stone and hand chisels – they are then sanded with different grades to create a smooth finish. They are inspired by stylised designs, not only from Irish culture, but also from other sources and cultures.

When people first started carving and painting stone thousands of years ago, they had their own surroundings to inspire them. These days we are surrounded by images and inspiration from all cultures. With this in mind, and also the ideas that Sonia sourced from time spent travelling in Africa, Europe and America, she has created a collection of stylish images for everyone to enjoy.

Sonia also creates once-off pieces of fine art art sculpture. This can be seen at

Abstract –



            The Stone

Kilkenny Limestone is a hard limestone quarried in the centre of Ireland, and has adorned many Irish and foreign buildings as well as being the main stone of choice for Irish sculptors.

Valentia Slate is sourced from a small quarry on Valentia Island, Co. Kerry, one of the most scenic places in Ireland. It was famously used to roof the Houses of Parliament in London.

     Stone Craft Pieces

They can be displayed indoors on a wooden stand (offered with the piece) or hung on a strong wall fixture.

Outdoors, they can also be hung on a strong wall fixture or they can also work well incorporated into the garden amongst rocks, plants or other garden features. They can also be set into a wall. Please specify this before you want to buy a piece and Sonia can help attach the right fixtures.
