Interior Soapstone Sculpture
Although different types of soapstone are found in many places in the world, I have access to the only quarry in England, which is in Cornwall. This particular stone gives me the opportunity to produce sculpture that has a feeling of strength and weight. By creating sharp changes of plane, as against subtle surfaces, it is possible to achieve polished highlights. I find that taking advantage of this can give the effect of depth and movement, causing the viewer’s eye to move around the work.
