I attempt, in my pieces to release in varying degrees, the natural energy of the stone being worked and contrast this with various textural elements and smooth finishes which allow the viewer to see into the essence of the stone. Yin/yang, male/female, the balances in life . This balance is shown also in the “space” of the stone. The material which has been removed and the space which is captured by the mass of the remaining stone. The seen and the unseen are the sum of the total. A tension is created between the formed and the unformed.
