"Cor Liberum" - The Little Figure Goes on a Crash Diet / by Mike McCarthy

I love the whole sculpture process. However, there are some moments that are just a little more fun than others. One of those is when you are splitting off a large section of stone from the main body. Last night, I was working on the smaller figure for my Norton commission. The stone came in at 8' long. The small figure is only going to be a little over 5'. So, I had a lot of stone to remove. This video shows how I used a drill and feathers and wedges to get rid of 2000 pounds of stone in about an hour.
