Dove Sculpture in progress


Dove Sculpture in progress

At the moment I’m making Dove shapes in Alabaster.  I love the curves and contentedness of resting birds, the softness and calm.  Alabaster I think is a good stone to convey this – allowing light, but not in detailed shapes, to pass through.

      Polishing stages now – alabaster is an extraordinary stone – as I’m sanding I can see clouds of more opaque stone showing through. Thanks Ellen.
