I look at the piece of stone until I see a shape in it, then I just chip way everything that's not that shape.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
For Stuart Blower the ability to change a lump of stone into a specific shape and form is very satisfying. It's a control thing, Stuart enjoys the fact that he can shape the rock to his will and produce a pleasing three dimensional form where none existed before.
Stuart's first piece was a small, Haida myth inspired soapstone carving affectionally named Igor, who has a permanent place in Stuart's living room.
That piece took Stuart a year to complete, working with a wood carving knife. Stuart says "I finished him just in time to go back to Bancroft, Ontario to buy another piece of soapstone for my next project, which also took a year to finish. Since then, my output has increased and I am now able to work with bigger, heavier materials such as marble and granite, using air powered tools".
