Stone as a material for creating sculptures has been used since the earliest of time. Prehistoric sculptures such as the "Venus of Willendorf" were usually representations of the human form or faceless statues of the Cycladic cultures and later on ancient Greece. Most sculptors working with stone have used hammers and chisel as their tool for carving stone. To create a stone sculpture the artist first selects a stone for carving. The artist then removes material to create the artwork. This is called the direct method. There is also the indirect method which is used by a sculptor that creates a model, usually made from plaster or modeling clay, and then the model is copied in stone. The roughing out process begins by knocking off or pitching portions of unwanted stone. As the general shape of the sculpture has been determined the sculptor uses toothed chisels and claw chisels to create parallel lines in stone. This usually adds texture to the stone figure. And as the sculpture comes to completion the artist polishes the final product. Many different types of stone such as soap stone, limestone, sandstone, alabaster, marble, travertine, onyx and granite can be used. From ancient times to Persia to Greek and Roman sculptures to Michelangelo and the Renaissance to modernism, minimalism and contemporary works - many artists use a multitude of stone for creating fabulous stone sculptures.

Patricia Nelson - Being an Artist is all my inner self relates to as a natural source of expression and peace. I find visual Arts to be a solid form of communicating non verbally and a platform to shine light on many humanitarian issues I am passionate about. Using art as my fuel to ignite a paradigm shift in this arena is paramount to forcing change in humanitarian related issues. Stone, Clay, Charcoal and Ink became mediums that represent much more then a finished piece they breath life into the subject by extracting emotions and invoke the viewer to feel an intimate connection. ...
Robin Antar - My abstract pieces depict the waves of thoughts moving through my mind at various moments. Sometimes, I sit in front of the stone, shut my eyes and meditate before starting the art process. I think of the form I need to create to transfer feelings of tranquility onto these works. When I feel angry, I attack the stone with the same mass array of sharp and powerful tools such as 7-inch diamond blades and high-powered air hammers, to chisel away and eliminate my stress, anxiety, and frustration. These emotions vanish as they are infused into the rock. Its true beauty of these sculpture lays not merely in its physical presence, but in its soul. My point is to bring a dead rock to life. What better way than to give it a physical shape and breathe my emotions into its grooves ...
