From raw stone to sculpture

Today I will show the steps from raw stone to sculpture. Sometimes the stone itself determines the outcome of the final product.  At first I wanted to make a vase but the first shape was a bit too big. I looked at the piece and imagined a body. Why not make a torso. This stone was rather soft so it was easy to cut.

The difficulty with a soft stone is that it will easily fragment when carving so you                have to be very careful.

The Torso is about 3,5cm
