My name is Sean dePasquale McKibbin also known as dePasquale Sculptures and I've been a professional sculptor for 35 years.I love the many challenges of stone sculpture whether it be marble, granite, alabaster, onyx marble, rose quartz or petrified wood. In order to work with different stones, you must obey and respect their inherent characteristics and properties, what works for one type of stone may not work for another type...etc! Commissioned work is welcomed.I usually sculpt that which I feel the stone is telling me it wants to be...most of the times the stone will show a part of a specific form..It is that part "for Those Who See" that I start my designing... However there are pieces I do where I have a preconceived design and I look for that particular stone which the design will "fit inside". I do direct carving which goes back to the Greek civilization, which means I draw directly onto the stone, and proceed carving..I can see the image, three dimensionaly in the stone...!(I do not do a clay model, then size it up and copy it) Nonetheless, I do Limited edition bronzes, from some of my original marble, alabaster and wood sculptures. I love carving wood as well especially drift wood! Please visit www.youtube.com/user/depasqualesculptures , I have seven informative sculpture videos, for you to see !
