Gardner Molloy (b. 1964)

Sculptor, stone carver and letter-cutter based in Cockenzie, East Lothian, Scotland. He trained as a stonemason at Telford College, Edinburgh, from 1986 to 1989, and as a stone carver with Ian Ketchin from 1988 to 1991. He was also tutored in letter-cutting by the Welsh carver and calligrapher Ieuan Rees. He has undertaken numerous inscription projects in Edinburgh, including those for the National Galleries of Scotland, the University of Edinburgh and the Hotel Missoni on George IV Bridge, as well as sculptural commissions in other parts of Scotland, such as a series of public art installations in the closes and wynds of Dunfermline (2009), and relief portrait of Thomas Chalmers in the Chalmers Memorial Garden in Anstruther (2013). Many of his public works are carried out in collaboration with the environmental consultants Ironside Farrer.
