Stone cutter :
A stone cutter is a qualified artisan capable of undertaking various tasks involving the construction or restoration of stone edifices.
His or her capabilities include: making simple drawings to preparatory studies for bonding, registering short specs, creating volumes in stone that constitute all or part of a building, determining how they are to be laid. The know-how of a stone cutter is based on technology, architecture and security.
Today's stone cutter is apt to use hi-tech equipment and digitalized machinery as well as traditional tools, for example the chisel and hammer, which are essential for achieving high quality finished products. Not only does it take the hands of a craftsman, but also great sensitivity, to acquire sufficient knowledge through rigorous practice to turn a block of stone into a work of art.
