Richard Stacy Aumonier, artist b.1965. British.

Work in bonded granite and hard stone. In 2004 I began working with London's commercial granite surplus, mainly 30mm slab. Using a technique called sandwich-bonding, prepared slabs are joined with formulated epoxy, minimized by grinding very flat surfaces. Hard stones give the bond integrity. Stones of the same type are bonded into blocks and these become compositional elements. I work with what's available, making do. To find, sort, cut and calibrate, bond and build has become a process, a deepening engagement and a source of sculptural enquiry.

The website is intermittent but further documentation is available by request. My studio is currently in Lewisham, visitors welcome.
