Once discussed and logistics, costs are agreeable the sculpture is designed, (usually in my mind, but you can have a sketch).Then its go to source and purchase the stone or marble..
This is the fun part, I quite like trudging around quarries looking at rocks and taking samples. Sometimes I will dig it out of the ground or rock face myself. At least then I know the stone and usually can tell whats inside it. Years of experience and perception are neccessary in order to successfully select material.
Then the rock is transported, or imported in the case of Italian marble, back my Studio where it is studied. looking for colours, grain, structure and how to get the best out of the piece. Once I am happy that I can see' the sculpture inside then cutting and splitting begins. The stone is turned around, rolled over and refined using hammers, chisels, splitting pins, grinders, hard graft in fact whatever tools and techniques are needed to create the piece. Refined and carved over and over until eventually the sculpture is there. It is then polished or finished, as required.
The finished piece is then ready, usually they are heavy to handle so I would deliver it and install, unless it is sent to you by carrier on a pallet. Smaller pieces can be collected. Clients are more than welcome to visit the work in progress and see what is going on.
