My first piece of fine stone carving
Scrollstone
Blue quartzite
30cm across
2009

This piece is the first of what I call my serious artworks.

This is a single, unbroken piece of blue quartzite, a glacial drop stone I found whilst walking through the fields surrounding my home; it caught my eye so I picked it up and carried it 2 miles to my studio!

The creation of this piece was totally unplanned, the stone itself encouraging me to push it to its limits. The scroll section is extremely thin and delicate and was very chellanging to complete.
