Really opening this piece up now. Still have about the bottom quarter to figure out. After that, I will start thinning out the pieces. My goal is for this to be a very light and elegant piece.

I love this Bordiglio Marble piece I am working on. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it is a little difficult to hold an edge over some of the graining. But, it is worth it for such a beautiful stone.

I am closing in on having all of the shapes figured out on this sculpture. Once I finish that part, I will really thin out the piece. I want this to have a really light feel even though it will weigh over 300 pounds when it is all finished.

This guy has been moving along well. The top 2/3 is figured out. I am still working on how the bottom of the piece terminates. The current plan is to have about 2” squared off at the bottom. The piece will go on a 18” x 18” x 3’ limestone base. I can’t decide how much stone I want to get rid of at the bottom. I am leaning towards getting this guy pretty thin.

This Indiana Limestone piece is moving along nicely. It is roughly 4.75 feet tall and I am leaning towards putting it on a base that is 3’ tall. I really like the verticality of the piece. I want to get some more air in the bottom section as I move along, but in general, I am happy with the progression.

This small sculpture is a split off piece from the Large figure I am working on. I love the graining of this marble. It may be a little distracting for the figure, but for this abstract, it is really beautiful.

This is a really cool piece of alabaster I have had for about a year. It has such great color and dimension, all you have to do is cut some shapes and it works.

Several years ago, I started welding up an abstract sculpture of a sail boat. the plan was to have a piece of angle iron serve as the ship with a steel sail. I am really not doing any metal sculpture now, however, As I had this welded piece, I thought it would be nice to finish it. I have decided to try a limestone sail to see if that works with the rest of the sculpture. Stay tuned to see how it goes.

It started out as the leg of "Cor Liberum", then it took a turn as a stand alone piece. It has evolved into a very different piece form its beginning. Sometimes the rock determines its own path.

This piece started off as a part of the "Caregiver" in "Cor Liberum". When I stood it up, this book off the front leg. I think it is a cool shape, so I am gong to see what it tells me it wants to be.

I am back to working on this piece. It need to sit and let me understand where it wanted to go. I think I have a better understanding. It is funny how stone communicates with you. Sometimes it says that it wants to go in a different direction. You just have to listen.

I have spent the last 7 months working almost exclusively on my Norton Commission, "Cor Liberum" That one is out of the studio, so I finally get to work on a different piece! All of the ideas in my head are about to explode if I don't get some of them in stone!!

This is the small figure. It is right before I broke off a 1000 pound chunk of stone. I am using feathers and wedges to break off the large corner to save time as well as keeping a big chunk of off fall material to use for a different sculpture.

Very slow progress on this marble piece. She will be worth it, but it will take a while to get there.

This figure will end up being about 2/3 scale. I am carving it from a block of Bottticino marble from Italy. It is slow going as I decided to do most of it by hand and only use the air hammer a little.
