About the Artwork
The soapstone or steatite it’s made of is a metamorphic rock composed mainly of talc. Made using only hand tools.
Background, history, commissioner of the work
Flow III was completed during my undergrad at DJCAD, Dundee.
This piece was carved as an exploration into the Fibonacci sequence and the waves in the sea. The procedure of carving involves my whole self and all my senses; thought, vision and physicality of course, but more than that are touch and sound. For me, to sculpt a natural curve in stone requires touching that contour, just looking is not enough.
