Something is happening

May 2, 2013 | Drawing, Sculpture, Time

Easier start today, the first steps have been taken but it always take time to get back into the groove after a week full of…life. Several hours had passed and all of a sudden forms in the stone moved, oh wow, I love it when that happens, it seems to me the most exciting part of stone carving. Can see enough to orientate myself and that is where the true planning starts for me, I have something visual to hold on to and work with, I can make decisions and guide the forms into space available in the material, this stage is fairly loose and free, look forward to have a few days in which I am aiming to create a map of the forms in my mind that suit the stone/material and my idea. Go, go, go!

Finding the ‘right’ form

The recent carving (first photo) had elements of relating to a curled up human form/baby that although organic and showing a formative development it is not what I want for my current carvings. I am after a vessel that 'holds' internal sound, I want the forms to be...
