My first activity in sculpture was through wood carving and this has developed into a greater interest in working in natural stone. I have attended a number of courses on stone carving and find this a very satisfying medium to work in. It is unusual for a sculptor to work both in clay, using build-up techniques, and also in stone where the process is taking away material from a solid block. However, stone carvers frequently make a maquette in clay to provide a model to use in the reduction process.
Here are several examples of my work in stone.
