Brown-Cream Alabaster  - W 40 x D 29 x H 20 cm

This was my first sculpture. I always wanted to carve stone, but I had nowhere to do it and I didn’t know how. I found this stone many years ago, but I had no opportunity to carve her. She had to wait patiently for me in my shed for years. Stones are good at waiting. They are very old. When it was finally time, I bought a set of chisels and a mallet and I brought her out. I taught myself how to carve. The stone was dormant, but I talked to her, and woke her up. She told me her story, and I knew she was ready to shine. And it was not just her that was waking up. Something inside of me was awoken, too.
