Limestone "Book" Monument
Sculpture, Fine Art & Illustration
A work still in progress:

Stay tuned for more pictures as I keep carving away!
Not every monument is destined for a cemetery. Some, such as this, fit well in a garden setting and may act as a reminder of a loved one while having great appeal as a piece of sculpture. This piece is full of natural elements that let it reside in harmony within its surroundings. It will easily last for centuries to come.
This piece is ready for an inscription or will sit nicely in your garden

Old Statue need repair? Have it restored to new condition!
Broken pieces? Dull & lifeless? Why spend a fortune on a new statue if your old one can be repaired?
Call for an assessment & quote to bring your old sculpture back to life. From refinishing, repairs,
adding color or detailing in gold leaf, have an expert bring it back to its original glory.

I start with the face. If it's not beautiful I won't continue carving until I feel it is appropriate. No models are being used so I have the freedom to make changes along the way
Clothing, hair & other shapes are worked after I am comfortable with the form & proportions. Wings are only rough at this stage but feather details will be next!
