Syreford limestone carving

13 December, 2012 – 5:00 pm

Here are the latest photos of my carving.

As you can see I have started to develop the hair more, trying to give the illusion of a body underneath.

It’s always a bit scary when I start to carve deeper into the legs and arms but the detail comes from these undercuts. There won’t be the really fine detail in the face as the stone which is from the North Cotswolds is very coarse and doesn’t lend itself to this type of carving.
