In 1996, after he moved to Italy, Simmonds began carving classical fine arts sculptures in 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.
