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.

  • Artists Describing Their Art:

    Dan Shiloh - I was born in Jerusalem Israel. I attended an officers nautical school and served in the navy as an engineer on a destroyer. After the navy I moved to Chicago USA and studied architecture at U of I Chicago campus and graduated in 1972 . I moved back to Israel and opened an architectural office in a small settlement in the Galilee region which became very successful. I retired about 10 years ago and opened as a hobby a black smith studio where I made metal sculptures. In 2009 I moved to Tel Aviv and started painting and sculpting in clay which I do up to these days. I was always interested in arts and I enjoy my painting and sculpting very much. Every year I travel to Florence Italy for at least a month where I paint and sculpt in the Accademia de Arte. I think its about time to share my work with the public and I hope it will enrich the homes of who ever likes my works....

    Dan Shiloh - Terry Mollo - ARTISTS STATEMENT Stone is my most important medium. The attributes of stone motivate me to seek and appreciate the beauty that has evolved with time and natures forces. Whether marble, travertine, alabaster, agate, onyx, each piece has its own story to tell. Its hues, striations, translucence, brilliance- and faults- have history and mystery to unlock. While carving I listen to the stone and carve only enough to find, and unleash, its organic lines and its aEURoevoice.aEUR Im inspired by the point at which natures organic form meets the inorganic. I concentrate on the force and tension created between the two, and search for the line that is formed by their union. In my sculpture, organic and inorganic form often conjure human emotion, human condition. Natures sea forms, shells and waves, suggest human form, depth, fluidity, texture, tone. Botanicals are sensuous with leaves and flowers that appear muscled and fleshy. Stems of flowers, such as orchids or lilies, stand tall, appear happy or courageous and proud, while other stems are viney or gnarled and appear desperate or defeated. All are similar to the ways in which the anatomy and musculature of the human body reflect its deepest feelings and emotion. Terry ...

    Jane Jaskevich - Jane Jaskevich Artist Statement Jaskevich is a carver of dreams in stone. Her mythical figures borrow elements from ancient cultures. Jane creates figures by combining various materials such as different stones, wood and found objects. She pays homage to the stonesO Greco-Roman roots. Her recent series deals with the incomplete figure and is entitled OThe Silhouette Series O. Partial heads that can be read as a silhouette are combined with full bodies. These sculptures suggest multiple ideas; ancient ruin, contemporary dreams, and flat vs 3D. 2012 brought exhibitions in the NYC Affordable Art Fair and her sculptures being published in Contemporary Sculptors by Kracun/ McFadden. Numerous Southeast galleries represent her. Jane received her BFA from University of Georgia and Masters in Art from Florida State with additional studies in Pietrasanta, Italy. Her public collections include an outdoor sculpture in a Michigan church and three sculptures for NationsBank Headquarters in Tampa. Jane has two sculptures in the permanent collection of the Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, Florida. Her large-scale bronze sculptures are the focal point for the Tampa GTE Data Center. . ...

    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 ...
