A sense of scale.  Arabescato marble, a special kind of Carrara Marble, from the Cervaiole quarry on the back of Mt. Altissimo.  Probably 3+ tons.

Chosen model with first cuts

   Sunday, March 23, 2014   




All possible ideas which fit into the stone.

   Sunday, March 23, 2014   




First cuts.  Then I stopped and changed ideas.

The block with the corners split off.  Then carving an oval for the bottom.  Hoping my sense of gravity and balance is right, Last photo it is flipped onto the oval and ready to cut and carve.  I’m drawing possible outcomes.

Splitting the corners from the block.  Paring down to it’s essential mass.
