Here at Earth and Stone we pride ourselves on our stonework, having over ten years of international experience in the stonemasonry industry.

We have worked with a huge variety of different stone types; central Otago and New Zealand schist, Cornish granite and Devonshire field stone to Dunedin basalt. All with different styles and techniques used to achieve the desired look.

Within the last 5 years we have also been involved with numerous stick on stone companies such as craft stone and hydestone, this style of stone work is becoming more common as it does not have to be foot loaded, and therefore can be easier to achieve consent in some cases.

We have worked on restoring 100 year old churches and hospitals to the most modern of new builds, including the recently finished Hills residence in Arrowtown central Otago.

So if you are after some advice or would like to discuss a future project please don't hesitate to contact us.

Alec Barker

Alec was born in the county of Devon, England, where he trained and studied to become a qualified brick layer/builder by the age of 20.

Now with over 10 years of experience in the Industry he is very familiar with a wide range of stone and styles. From Devonshire slate, field and sand stone to local schist and basalt.

Alec traveled to New Zealand on various occasions before staying for good in 2008.

He has worked for a stonemasonry company in Queenstown for over 5 years, but the lure of the sea has posed too much and has now moved to Dunedin, where he founded Earth & Stone in 2014.
