in June and July I worked in the Caroli Studio in Carrara, my first encounter with carving stone. Needless to say there was a fairly hefty weight and history of figurative sculpture.

my experience started from scratch

air tools

 

first piece

red for low, blue for high

the final work was with an emerald onyx travertinate from India. a stone with very strong character and an opportunity for me to work with the stone and try to express its geomorphology as well as some sense of its mining and handling.
