Ron Fedor is a self-taught stone carver from Mantua, Ohio. He has spent more than 40 years in the stone masonry craft, which has evolved into a passion for the timeless traditional manner of stone carving.. His inspiration to carve comes from the 1820 log building that houses his studio. Although not formally trained in the art, Fedor keeps an open mind to carving and enjoys creating folk art pieces.
Fedor believes the look of hand-chiseled stone, as opposed to computer-generated objects, shows the artist’s personal touch, with no two pieces being exactly the same. Through his pieces, he finds a way to connect and communicate with his clients. "Everyone loves stone," he noted.
The detail he carves in a piece of stone is what makes them a one of a kind piece of art. He offers finished work from his website or undertakes custom orders.
