Love at First Sight

9 Mar

This changes everything! I got hold of some stone chisels, a soft iron hammer and some blocks of alabaster and marble. I couldn’t believe how easy, simple and doable stone carving is. It’s the opposite of the esoteric, intimidating medium I’d thought it was. So far, it’s like carving hardwood, but with far less fussing about tools/sharpening. My ingenious new plan is to make something in clay, then do it even more carefully and meticulously in stone.
