Ammonite carved from Whitby Sandstone. 1.2 metres by 1 metre.
My childhood spent on Whitby beaches collecting fossils greatly inspires me with this concept. The spiral shape; natural pattern of growth, is the basis for all my artworks.
I have carved quite a few of these pieces, mostly in Whitby Sandstone. A nice size is about one metre or just bigger. The stone works with the shape, weathers beautifully and this sculpture is always a welcome addition to any garden.
