Artist's description:

“Forever True” is a beautiful sculpture from William Chewa’s collection of “Expressions of Love”. This sculpture is hand carved from Lemon Opal stone. Unlike other forms of sculpture it is impossible to replicate the identical patterns that are found within the stone. It is possible to see minerals within the stone making the piece seemingly translucent. The rich red/brown color is achieved by leaving the one side unpolished. This allows the the piece to be viewed from both sides, or can be turned to provide a different perspective . The piece is carved using a diamond tipped chisel. It is then sanded for literally hours through varying degrees of sand paper until the artist reaches 2500 grade sand paper. The sculpture is then heated and a polish is melted into the stone. Finally it is buffered to leave this wonderfully tactile surface.



Perhaps the perfect ornament to fill that special space. Or maybe a different kind of gift for that special someone or occasion. The sculpture is suitable for inside or outside the home, requiring minimal care.



ABOUT THE ARTIST: William Chewa as with many of our artists started sculpting at the age of 13. His origins are from Guruve and he was taught to sculpt by his parents. He is particularly interested in the bonds between family and couples. He currently resides in Harare working alongside his brother.
