Hand-carved from Kasota Stone, a dolomitic limestone in southern Minnesota. This stone is from a 400 thousand year old fossilized river bed. Carved by hammer and chisel, then finished with chisel and hand-sanding.
Paul Wood I find it a constant source of fascination to see different stones from around the world, and their technical and aesthetic possibilities. The finer German Sandstones and Limestones which I now work with appear similar in character to your stone here. And yes, stone should be worked by hand. It is so important to hear and feel the reaction of the material.
