Artist's description:

This small sculpture is one of a large series of abstract bird forms which I carved in soapstone. This greeny-black soapstone (also known as steatite) is soft to carve with beautiful markings. The sculptures have the same feel as the pod series that I carved inspired by Nature, smooth simple forms giving a sense of peace. This small sculpture is finished with oil and polished to a deep gleam. 13.5 cm high this is perfect for either a mantlepiece, desk or windowsill sculpture - I originally made it as a maquette for a larger piece. This was carved with a rasp and finished with files and marble sponges, especially for smoothing stone, I then oiled it with soapstone oil and buffed and polished it to get a protective finish.

Materials used:

black green soapstone, steatite. Italian alabaster

Bird Form II - maquette (2014)
