Meet the Ama Ketla Team


Through hands-on application of stone, on countless homes and buildings within Western Canada, Kevin has developed a deep and practical understanding of the art of stone.

The intimate knowledge of the patterns, facets and characteristics in each rock and different blends of stone makes Kevin an excellent option for clients and masons alike to discuss which products of Ama Ketla may best achieve their desired look for their project.

From an early age, Phill has nurtured an interest in geology and natural stone. Phill studied Mining Engineering at the Camborne School of Mines in Cornwall UK, and Graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Hons.) in 1985. After 5 years in the UK tunnelling industry and a year in west Australian surface mining, Phill moved to Canada in 1992 with his family. Many interesting construction and mining projects within western Canada provided excellent experience in coordinating and technical roles, including 2 years managing a specialist slope stability company in Kamloops. An ever-increasing focus has been on providing geotechnical services locally. Phill also gets involved with many local clubs and sports, and revels in the outdoor living the beautiful area around Pemberton and Mt Currie offer. Within AMA KETLA Phill provides the coordinating and technical assistance in the collection of the natural
stone from the local resources.
