Stone Carvings by Stuart Blower
A selection of the interesting things I have created.

I Like A Challenge

Our mascot The Stone Devil has often been described as a Self Portrait of the artist.

I pick colours, shapes and sizes that look interesting. I have worked with different stone hardness from nail scratching Soapstone all the way up to chisel blunting Black Granite.

The way I pick a particular stone depends on three things:

1) I look for a specific size and shape and sometimes colour that will accommodate an existing idea.

2) I find a stone with great colours and a big enough shape that suggests what might be trapped inside and I work towards that idea until the stone suggests something else.

Selecting The Stone

3) I find a great stone with amazing colours and haven’t a clue. So I buy it and look at it for a few weeks, months or years until I know what to do with it.

Of course there is always the old “standby”.
Buy it and drill a hole in it. The visual feedback of that first cut, will get you started on how it will progress.

End of Season Commissions

Stuart has been busy working on several “on-site” commissions.
