Incredibly Realistic Interiors Carved into Marble & Stone



With a degree in Art History, specializing in art and architectureMatthew Simmonds is in a small group of people who actually used their college degree for their job. His studies led him to train as an architectural stone carver and worked with teams in the restoration of famous historic buildings like the Westminster Abbey and Ely Cathedral in England.
In 1996, after he moved to Italy, Simmonds began carving classical fine arts sculptures in marble and just 3 years later won first prize at the Verona International Sculpture Symposium. Simmonds’ miniature architectural carvings are as beautiful as their full sized counterparts. The meticulous details on such a small scale are even more impressive. The rough edges of the original stone slabs contrast with his clean carvings in a beautiful way.
