I am spending my weekend teaching stone carving, a lot of the students are new to the material and or the idea of carving a form. Enthusiasm for it seems easily passed on as I am talking away and bombarding everybody with my ideas on the subject matter, hoping not to leave students bewildered. Not only does it light up new enthusiasm in myself, I also want to pass on the techniques that have become of value to me. So I sat here last night drawing up ideas for the little piece I started myself whilst teaching. It is good for me, without the pressure of feeling that to much of the material has been removed whilst still not knowing where I am going, to draw and be playful with ideas, reminding myself it is not about shaping a concrete form but more the idea of a form and here are my ideas for today.
