Testimonials

Stonelove created a range of custom sculpture and furniture from marble, wood, metal and resin, made to our original designs. Some sculpture was created in a mix of materials and was integrated together.

The images of the sculpture being created were fascinating. To see the statues and sculpture develop from blocks of marble was remarkable.

The customer service and communications were excellent.

The finished items are incredible, the workmanship is exceptional and the materials are of the highest quality.

I am more than delighted with the sculpture and would be happy to recommend Stonelove to anyone.

Dear Matthew,

The crate arrived safely today. May I take this opportunity to thank yourself and everyone at Stonelove for all their outstanding hard work and help in this matter.

The fantastic communications, the photographs, packaging, the quality of the raw materials used and the highly skilled craftsmanship involved, my family and I were truly impressed with.

The marble Eagle and Plinth, both look absolutely fantastic and are beyond what we could have expected. It's always a real pleasure to deal with a highly professional company.

Thank you ever so much.

We found this dolphin statue fountain on the web and almost thought that it was too good to be true, given the price. We ordered online from Stonelove Ltd and were immediately informed of the order process and were kept up to date regularly through out the process until final delivery, together with photos etc . Now installed it’s a great addition to the garden, everyone who has seen it cannot believe the quality of the hand carving.

"After visiting Banyon temple in Cambodia, I wanted to have a copy of the face of Jayavarman VII at home.I contacted Stonelove and sent a few pictures of the original. I discussed dimensions and color and artistic design with them.

The carving of both the face in the pedestal and the face of the king are as close to the original photos as I had hoped. They even recreated the lines in the face and in the pedestal giving it the appearance of multiple stones making up the sculpture instead of two large pieces of sandstone. I would anticipate, after 700 years of season changes, the colors and moss will likely make my pieces of art indistinguishable from the originals. I have no hesitation in recommending the stonecarvers and businessmen at Stonelove."

"All the great garden designers know that one of the most powerful and eye-catching things you can put in your garden is a statue. But the fussy and overdone statues on offer on the internet, or at my local garden centre, were not reflecting the new mood of statuary. I wanted something modern and powerful with clean, clear lines. Who commissions their own artwork? It turned out to be me. And it turned out to be easy. Inspired by the gargoyles on Gaudi’s unfinished cathedral in Barcelona, I wanted to pay a similar tribute to all the lowliest and most scorned creatures on the planet, and celebrate their often-unrecognised beauty. Using photos of the snails that glide over the vertical walls of the Sagrada Familiale and real snail shells, the stonemason has produced a remarkable and striking focus for my garden. It draws the eye in a way that even your most remarkable tree never can. A garden without a statue? Its like a sitting room without a fireplace!"

"I wanted to thank you for you help in creating our beautiful Buddha sculpture. I still can't believe that everything was conducted via the internet with such ease. I appreciated all of your suggestions and help with the final design of the piece. The digital photos you sent of the carvers at work are amazing and act as a diary of the creative process. I thank you for making everything so easy, from concept to delivery. Everything was perfect and extremely easy for me. All I had to do was arrange to have him placed on his pedestal. I would not hesitate to recommend you as I am an extremely satisfied customer. I hope one day to find a place for one of your dragons."

"The sculpture arrived yesterday, it took me hours to unpack since I could only knibble away at the foam for fear of causing damage to the statue.I It is in perfect condition and I have only just placed it in the garden. Please thank the artist for me, he has created a lovely piece. It seems a little bizarre that a sculpture created on the other side of the world by a Vietnamese craftsman should end up in a country garden on the English/Scottish Border."

"Buddha was delivered today in perfect condition. He is absolutely stunning!! Thank you so much for all of your help."

"Thanks for the Shetland sculpture, it's brilliant & looks lovely in the garden. The artists have done an amazing job and a beautiful recreation of the pony on the photos. My gardener was here when it arrived & unpacked it for me. He was very impressed & has offered to make a plinth for it to sit on, which will lift it up a bit & also give extra protection."

Ms. Prothero. Herts, UK.

What an easy experience to commission a bespoke sculpture! Excellent customer service and beautiful workmanship. I will definitely order from Stonelove again!

"I was searching for a large stone statue of a rhino, but couldnt find any until I found Stonelove on google. I sent suitable pictures and was given a very reasonable quote for an 80cm long rhino carved in sandstone. As promised the statue arrived 6 weeks later and I was astounded by the realism and attention to detail of it. It is a real masterpiece in stone and sits in my back garden brightening it up."

"After looking everywhere for an authentic Easter Island head, we were lucky to find Stonelove. Using pictures that we sent them, they carved an Easter Island head in solid sandstone and we received our custom made statue six weeks after placing the order. We were constantly kept updated on the progress of our statue and were amazed that it arrived so quickly and safely. The one metre high statue creates a unusual atmosphere in our garden and we are delighted that the statue is a unique work of art rather than a molded copy. Thanks again Stonelove."

John Edmundson, UK.

An outstanding art piece with excellent service. Matthew is a pleasure to work with.

The marble statue of John L. Sullivan the famous boxer is better than we could have hoped for.

The quality is exceptional.The sculpture drawings produced by the graphic artist for the sculptors were very well done and helped to make the statue so realistic, capturing a good likeness.

The price was far cheaper than other sculpture suppliers we contacted. Delivery was painless and hassle free.

As a town we are proud to publicly display this statue as a tribute to our most famous ever visitor.  The statue stands in front of the world's only Hall of Fame dedicated to Bare Knuckle boxing.

Thanks Stonelove, we are so grateful for helping this idea turn into a reality.

So thank you for all your efforts, your patience, your help and direction. For me it was a pleasure working with you and I am delighted with it all from start to finish – great ! You have been helpful over and beyond Matthew; to be fair, dealing with vendor organizations with such support is sadly becoming a rarity, so it’s a great attribute and one that I and I am certain others too, fully appreciate. Do also pass on my appreciation to the sculptors; their skill is amazing. Thank you.
