This piece is a rendition of a female figure in green Winterstone; a torso with arms outstretched as the woman turns to look back. My interest is in the fundamental gesture of the figure as I try to create a rhythmic flow through the form and capture a moment in time and the fullness of the female body.
Winterstone is a dry powder mix which when mixed with water produces a clay-like consistency. Initially it can be modeled easily like clay. As it starts to harden it can be carved with soft carving tools. After 24 hours it can be carved with hard carving tools.
