This year I will be exhibiting a body of work which is inspired by the landscape and natural form around me, as well as being inspired by the stone I will be directly carving onto. My first piece this year is inspired by the burgeoning of life again in the form of spring. It is entitled ‘awakening’.
I enjoy the random nature of the form of stone cut out of the quarry and try to find the form within, as though it’s in there already. I enjoy working in a variety of different stones as they all necessitate me to work in different ways to adapt to the material.
