Beautiful
by: Anonymous

A very beautiful and totally different type of sculpture. It is a great work of skill and thinking. It's really deserves this price, honor and fame due to its beauty, and by whom it is made and its unique concept, pulling of sea creature from his mouth. It's really amazing.

Wonderful low releif carving
by: Aaron Frater

Darren, this peice is superb. Low releif carving ahs always been lionked to story & narative. In churches in the Middle Ages low releif stone catrving was the bible for those who could not read (most people). In Maori, and other indigionous cultures, the carvings or paintings show these stories.

Shaugns Recommended Stone Carving Tools

Although the tools below are sold through Amazon. They are the same as the stone carving tools that I personally recommend to my students for carving with Oamaru stone.


Poratable Workbench

These benches are height adjustable which makes them perfect for stone carving. I own the Ryobi workbench and love it, but unfortunatlly it is only sold through Amazon's UK store for people that are wanting to buy it online.



Stanley: Surform Shaver

This is a must-have tool for shaping large areas of Oamaru stone


Riffler Files

These are smaller files that are designed for the parts of your sculpture that are difficult to get at. They are also an essential set of tools



Builders Pencils


Crosscut Hand Saw

This type of crosscut  hand saw is my recommendation for cutting Oamaru stone


Keyhole Handsaw

A very handy saw. Mosty used for sawing after a hole after it has been drilled into the stone.
