Stonemasonry

Description

George Plant from Stoke-on-Trent is a highly skilled stonemason who can craft an intricate and sophisticated design into a solid piece of stone with millimetre precision.

In this video we see the 22-year-old perfecting his skills in the run up to the WorldSkills competition, held in Japan in November 2007.

Watch as George attempts to marry the time-saving use of compressed air tools with the complex and precise art of using a mallet and chisel to create the perfect piece.
