Oamaru stone is a perfect medium for sculpting a modern lamp like the one above. Due to the stone being porous it draws in the light instead of reflecting it away. Colors from the LED lights slowly change to create a relaxing ambiance.

Untitled Modernist Sculpture

Width 625 mm

I really enjoy working with abstracts and with this modernist sculpture I wanted to create a piece that pushes the stone to the limit with the way it twists and turns.
Many of the recent sculptures on this website are commissioned projects, particularly the larger sculptures. They are all designed, measured and sculpted to suit the customers needs. When I meet a client for the first time we discuss ideas about the design and the meaning behind the finished artwork. I will then take a photo of the area where the artwork is going to be placed and get some measurements of the height, width and length.
I then draw up a design and paste it into the background image using computer graphics so the customer gets to see what the sculpture will look like before it is carved.A quote and details about the project are also given.
Once the sculpture is underway, progress photos are emailed to the client at different stages of completion.
If you are interested in purchasing an artwork or you would like to commission a sculpture, I would love to hear from you.

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.
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
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
Crosscut Hand Saw
This type of crosscut hand saw is my recommendation for cutting Oamaru stone
A very handy saw. Mosty used for sawing after a hole after it has been drilled into the stone.
