S. A. Warren & Daughters showcases Stone Carving & Conservation Work by Simeon A. Warren. Generally working with clients who wish to create something that is vanishing or does not exist. Our aim is to develop space for Creation with Passion to leave a lasting personal Legacy. His specialism is contemporary fireplace mantels and stone conservation but can generally work anything in stone.
Historically the title, A.Warren & Daughters, reflects his family history. His Great Grandfather Albert Warren set up a family business A.Warren and Sons. Simeon's father, Peter, and grandfather, Silas, continued this business for many years. As a father of two young ladies S.A.Warren & Daughters honors family history and reflect's a Legacy and wonder at the future potential of two wonderful Daughters (whatever their path will be).
The Stone People Project is Simeon A. Warren's major long term research and public art project working with multiple organization and individuals. The project showcases his search to understand and expand the historical knowledge of the Master Masons of the great English Cathedrals and create a narrative which combines history, sculpture and some unknown or forgotten mythological Ideas.
His research focuses on the period between 1235 and 1300 and more specifically 1280-95 between the period that Lincoln Cathedrals Great Angel Choir was built and the creation of the Eleanor Crosses commemorating the death of Eleanor, Edward the first wife. The crosses literally and figuratively connect Lincoln Cathedral with Westminster Abbey.
The expected completion date on this project is Fall 2041 (The 800 anniversary of Eleanor of Castile Birth and time for me to retire at 71).
