The Irish Stone Workers Alliance: Artistic policy

Our artistic policy has an emphasis on excellence; good practice being qualified by the adherence to traditional hand crafted work, as opposed to machine work, and to draughtsmanship, design and execution to the highest possible standards.

We encourage the use of native Irish stone, as opposed to imported material, in support for the trades who quarry indigenous stone, to whom our artists have a close relationship.

Our policy is to provide fair and equitable pay for stone artists and enable them to develop their professional integrity. We encourage freedom of expression within the guidelines of a given project, if collaborative, and follow a code of ethics with regards to the artistic integrity of our projects.
