Welsh Slate


Ioan Raymond is a stonemason and craftsman based in Southampton, Hampshire. Having grown up around slate quarries in Wales, he was inspired to turn offcuts of slate into wine racks, water features and pieces of art. This is not only the story of the transformation of a piece of slate. It’s the story of someone who has found their passion through hard work and exploration. It’s just as much a celebration of Ioan as a creator as it is about showcasing his work.
