Now in Marble

12 Mar

Now that my pink alabaster sculpture is in the shop for repairs, I’m starting on a new one, this time in harder Italian marble. This rock has an even more irresistible, glacier-like translucence that makes it a joy to carve. It’s quite hard, though. The chisels lose that satisfying “bite” after an hour or so of work.
