work in progress: a little soapstone owl.

work in progress: a little soapstone owl.

This little fellow will be finished – all smooth and polished – by Christmas. It´s quite nice to work on such a small piece for a change, the stone is just about 5 cm high. But one really has to take great care when using a tool on this little face – one false move and it´s messed up completely with not much working material left to improvise.

    • Hi there, thanks for your feedback, I am glad to have inspired you. Yes I can only recommend working with soapstone, you sure will find it highly enjoyable. They come in so many different colours and especially the brownish ones are so soft, the working process is really rewarding. And they have a very nice feel when they are done, too. I will keep an eye on your blog to see when you found the time to do some carving 😉
