About Us

Peace of Mined is a letter cutting and decorative carving company run by artist Jon Evans and designer Jen Drage. We create beautifully hand carved pieces of slate, stone and wood, designed to your requirements, at our home and workshop near Aberystwyth in Ceredigion, Wales,

Have a look at our commissions gallery for examples of items we've created for individuals, businesses and organisations around the UK. Jon is the master of the traditional side of our work, carving all of our pieces by hand using a chisel and mallet. Motifs, patterns and other decorations are also designed by artist Jon with the traditional pencil and paper! Jen takes care of the computerised side of things, designing our creative lettering layouts using the latest graphic design software and incorporating Jon's sketches to produce mock-up layout designs for our customers. Working together like this allows us to create completely hand made items in an efficient way. Because we don't need to go through the  process of drawing out each letter by hand, we can offer hand carved lettering at a reasonable price and an excellent design service, so we know our customers are completely happy before anything is 'set in stone'!

When he's not creating carvings for Peace of Mined customers, Jon works on his own art, which is also displayed on our website, on our Sculpture galley page. As an artist Jon is inspired by nature and mythology, and often includes intricate celtic knotwork in his work. Jon has also appeared on Channel 4's Landscape Man building a slate 'Dragon Wall' water feature and had . Jen and Jon also work together to add additional inscriptions to match the original lettering style on granite and slate gravestones in the local area for James Memorials Ltd, and Jen runs her own graphic and web design company, Aye-aye Design.
