Moving along nicely

Moving along nicely

A weekend full of stone dust and the sound of the grinder, what could be better? I made progress during the last days, can see the forms finding their place in the stone. I seem to have the hang of the grinder now and the carving is developing...

The other side

The other side

With no other carving did I experience the same longing to turn it, being able to view it all the time from all sides, I believe this is due to a deeper understanding of 3D-ness, how I want the form to move freely between dimension. Thanks...

Carry on, move on

Aware of my limited experience working with stone on a larger scale I lost heart for a few days, I literally did. The constant thinking about the carving, the forms, the drive to get to the workshop...where did it all go? It gave way to the sinking feeling that I...

The rocks are here

The rocks are here

We set off to in the morning to arrive in Cornwall by midday. Wim and Lar loading two big rocks in no time into Lar's van. I am speechless watching Wim working and controlling the forklift, the way he wraps the webbing around the boulders, knowing exactly how the...

Form 2
