Christopher is a letter carver from the Cape Flats in Khayelitsha. The art of letter carving is an ancient skill originating with the stone carvers of Europe. He wants to make a difference in the South African arts and crafts industry, and to create jobs for the unemployed and disabled youth of South Africa. He carves letters, text, logos, drawings and portraits on slate, rough stone, natural stone, multi-colour stone and marble, using a chisel and hammer. Clients contact him with a design they wish to have carved.
Christopher was trained and mentored by Maud Bekaert, a famous letter carver from Belgium. He aims to create unique, fresh work of quality, and offer sound service.
