The act of stone carving is a primitive one. A different part of the mind rises up, the part that exists in a dark cave. Its an energetic process, filing away, and when you step away - leaving dusty white footprints away from where you were sitting - your head will be light with endorphins. There will be a white cloud of dust emitting outward from where you were carving, like nuclear fallout, settling on all surfaces, including the fruit bowl.
I made these carvings to help me connect with myself, weighty comforts - they are sacred objects, which I do not display but wrap carefully in calico and keep in a box. I have gathered similar items on pinterest.
