3D sculptures


My 3D work includes representational pieces and pure abstracts. They start as a rough sketch, but evolve during the very physical work of shaping the stone through chiselling and smoothing  until they just 'feel right' in terms of balance and repose. 


I am interested in curves, angles and planes,  appealing as much to the touch as to the eye. 




Working from a fairly general 3D idea, I begin to shape the stone with an angle grinder, but beyond that it is all done by hand and then, if the piece is to have a smooth finish, a long process of filing and  abrasives. Many denser limestones develope a  polish,  which makes the sculpture a delight to touch.
