STONE SCULPTURE

Stone is eternal. It has a permanence and longevity lacking in other materials, and is undoubtedly the ultimate material for sculpture.

Stone must be worked with finesse , friendliness and respect to seek its natural forms. Stone works with you, it reveals itself naturally when worked by hand with mallet and chisel, but rebels when violated with pneumatic air hammers and power tools. stone gives itself to skill and love. The power and durability lies in the stone not in the arms of the sculptor or tools. The stone is the master, not the sculptor. It can be smashed with violence but never forced to capitulate. To sympathy; it yields its majesty.
