Third Direct Sculpting Session

30 Mar

The shape of this abstract sculpture is becoming more evident. I’ve just learned that this is called “direct sculpture,” where you make it up as you carve the stone, instead of reproducing a clay or wooden sculpture in stone. In addition to learning how the hammers and chisels work, I’m learning that you reach real physical limits after a couple of hours in ways you don’t with clay or painting. It’s easy to get tired and careless after two hours.
