The characteristics of the stone was the inspiration behind the piece, I wanted to showcase the color and translucent qualities. Using shadows to amplify my line work I was able to deﬁne form. There is a freedom to carving abstract forms, where one does not need a focal point. This allows my conceptual thought process to be solely expressed through my evolving level of artistry. Enabling me to push the boundaries of exploring creative outlets of design.
I hand carved this sculpture utilizing traditional and contemporary methods. The form of the wood base compliments the abstract sculpture by allowing the same language to continue. The piece sits on a turn-table which allows it to be viewed from any direction.
