Spring Stone Carving

Sculpture received a donation from a women that could no longer carve and wanted her un-carved stone to go to a good home.  So, spring semester brought on bigger possibilities and with that came greater challenges.

Notice the Maquette in the far left image, this helps a great deal for reductive sculpting from six sides.  After the design has been mapped out on the stone, start carving; or for this example cut down to size first.  The last image is a finished result (later in the spring 2016 student show).  It was cut into numerous pieces and then adhered together with an industrial epoxy.
