Stone Sculpture

by Kevin Blockley ARBS

Since 1994 I have been experimenting with stone sculpture, frequently using material rescued from my archaeological excavations. By 2011 I had a sufficiently large collection to hold a solo exhition, A Journey in Stone, in our chapel which included the theme 'art of the invisible' investigating microscopic forms in nature.

Wanting to carve large pieces of stone, in 2012  I visited the marble quarries of Carrara, Italy and purchased over 12 tons of marble and Onyx. In the same year I undertook some training in a marble studio in Pietrasanta, Italy and have been working larger scale pieces since then.

In 2013 I staged three solo exhibitions: at Lichfield Cathedral in August, Bristol Cathedral in September and The Bleddfa Centre in October.

Much of my work is prepared for exhibitions, but I am also very happy to undertake commissions on request, particluarly of outdoor sculptures, standing stones and memorials.
