Design And Process

Once an initial concept is worked out with the client, some sketches are created.  A clay scale model is created where the design is refined and any final changes can be incorporated.  The clay model gets a silicone mold and a hard plaster model is cast.  This model is used for scale measurements  during the stone carving .

Carving Process.   
This was a project carved while at Oberg Studio.  Starting with a 5 ton block, a 4 foot stripped bass is layed out using plaster model (pictured top left) made by sculptor Jay Bothwell.  Stone is roughed into general shape, then surface details and polishing.
