STONE ART - GALLERY 1
Marble Sculptures

Working with Marble

I enjoy challenging the notion that stone carving belongs solely to past eras. 

For instance, many people only associate marble sculpture with the untouchable artifacts, saintly statues, and somber monuments found in history museums, old churches, and ancient cemeteries --- I like creating marble artworks that reflect more modern times, are a bit more whimsical, and can be enjoyed in the home, garden or gallery. 

And where the sculptures can be closely admired, since I believe that stone art provides a unique tactile experience. 

In addition to marble, I also work with soapstone, limestone and alabaster. - Alan Rhody
