Steven Clark is the maker behind Den holm; a stone mason and artist living and working in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. Originating from a small country town in the Scottish Borders, Clark was traditionally trained as a stone mason before a path through fashion and textile embroidery led him back to his skills with stone design.
Clark’s creations are a mix of art and furniture focusing heavily on texture and form. His designs are free from restrictions, merging the traditional craftsmanship of his formal training in stone carvery and the experimental nature of textile and embroidery. His preferred medium is Australian lime stone, as well as creating new agitates combining stone with concrete mix to create one of a kind furniture designs and sculptures.
