Why Sculpture?
To try to say some things I think need saying.
To solve any problems a piece stone offers.
For the sheer pleasure of cutting and shaping the stuff.
It’s material music with a very profound rhythm, it satisfies.
Sometimes the stone tells me what to do, sometimes my idea becomes the stone.
The best times are when the stone informs the idea and all is rhythm and material music.
