Carol Crawford

My stone sculptures are an expression of my inner being – they are created as ’steam of consciousness’ sculptures and are all feminine in nature.

They are suggestive of a feeling, rather than a ‘thing’!  However, saying this, they are also reminiscent of so many things we see in nature and in the world that surrounds us.

I do not use maquettes or predetermine the outcome of any of my stone sculptures – they evolve naturally as part of a conversation I have with the stone.

The sculptures are hand filed and hand polished (after the initial chipping out with a hand tool) in a very slow process.  I do not measure anything or use large grinders or diamond tools.  My conversations take time and cannot be hurried – the sculptures are evocative of feelings, and as such are very personal to me.
