Work in Progress – “…and Breathe”

My latest piece is in Indian Soapstone. It polishes up like ebony, but the parts that remain unpolished remain a vivid duck-egg blue, so you can achieve some really interesting contrasts and textures. This piece is going to be called “… and Breathe.” It is a head of someone emerging from water (the water which will be represented by a hammered copper sheet). The striations surrounding the head represent more water flowing over it. I really like the chisel marks on the roughed-out striations and am minded not to polish them out.
