A happy and healing New Year from Karin Sprague Stone Carvers


Looking back on 2023, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the clients I work for and the team of artisans I work with. The past year saw the addition of apprentice Michael Brahce to the shop. His patience and creative energy have added grace to the manifold projects he has worked on. Another highlight was having artist, Alexandra Morosco make a guest appearance in the studio. Over the span of 18 months, Ali realized one of the largest, hand-cut sculptural elements the shop has designed. 

When working in stone, progress is not always visible in a single day, but a year's time reveals the chisel's steady work. And, despite our new knowledge of pneumatic stone-cutting acquired through a workshop with Al Williams from Chester Granite, we know that the work done over time is what creates a lasting memorial.         

Together with my team, I thank those families who have trusted our process and let us create beautiful, hand-carved memorials for their loved ones in 2023. 

With Gratitude, 
Karin Sprague
