There is a hint of the male form on the back side of this feminine torso. Perhaps it is something I only imagine and others may not see it.


Before Carving the Stone:

Above: In November 2002, the alabaster from Utah looked like the above. My nephew Shawn saw the same thing in this stone that I did. Imagine a figure 8, bent into a "V", with each loop twisted in slightly opposite directions. A morphing of mathematics, if you will. I ended up turning the 8 into an abstracted female torso.

Begin Finishing the Stone Sculpture:

Above: August and September 2004: I have now begun to refine the shape with files, using angular lights to help me see the forms. During the carving stages, the stone looks white and paste-y. As I get into the very fine sandpapers, the true color of the stone emerges. This piece of alabaster from Utah is a beautiful creme color with dark veining.
