Welcome to the website of Karin Sprague Stone Carvers, Inc. We are a few of the dozen or so remaining stone carvers in the United States who continue the tradition of carving memorials and gravestones solely by hand. Located in Northern Rhode Island, we work with clients and cemeteries throughout the country. We are artists, designers and stone carvers, and yet we are much more.
From tombstones to monuments, memorials to architecture, and celebration stones to bird baths, we carve meaningful designs of remembrance into timeless stone. Working from hand-drawn letters, symbols and sculptures, our carvers tap away at the stone with only chisels and a mallet to create beautiful pieces of custom art. At Karin Sprague Stone Carvers, we call this process the Art of Remembering.
Translating the love in our souls and the memories in our hearts into an honest and artful representation of the essence of a loved one is a process filled with discovery and healing. Please explore our website and view our gallery to better understand this Art of Remembering, and contact us to learn more about what we can do for you.
From first call through creation, and ceremoniously ending in installation, we will walk you through this journey all the while tending to every detail with love and compassion.
