Michael Disley

Born in 1962, Michael has worked in stone, granite, and marble for more
than thirty years. He has over a hundred commissioned works on public
view in the UK, Ireland, and The Far East, and work in many public and
private collections.
He has worked as a stonemason in Chester, lived and carved alongside the
Shona carvers of Zimbabwe and carved marble in Japan. Recently he has
worked in Jaipur carving sandstone and in Xiamen in China making large
granite pieces for commissions.
His bas-relief trees are carved from marble sourced from around the world
and celebrate the stunning beauty of the materials: each one is unique as
no two pieces of marble are the same.
This year Michael has installed a series of granite sheep seats in Yorkshire,
‘Voyage Of Discovery’ a two piece granite carving in Galway Bay Ireland,
and is presently working on some larger stone trees for the 2018 Chelsea
Flower Show.
He exhibits widely across the UK, and his studio for the last twenty years has
been at Appleton Quarry in The Peak District.
