Shy Beauty is a Roman Brecchia stone. It is a clastic sedimentary rock, which is a rock composed of broken pieces of older rocks. It was often used by the Romans to enhance the beauty of many of their buildings.
Angel Wing is alabaster, a fine-grained, translucent form of gypsum, often seen white with many color variations. It's found in many places throughout the world; this piece was quarried in California.
Byron is carved from alabaster, quarried in Southern California. It's a soft stone, full of different colors. A sibling to Angle Wing (scroll up), you can see how these two sculptures are related and still different (sort of like how human siblings are related and different)
Shelley is created from coquina, a remarkable rock, full of embedded fossilized sea shells. Undoubtedly millions of years old. Significant deposits of coquina are found along the coasts of Florida and North Carolina.
The Second Rachael
The Second Rachael is similar to Rachael, which can be seen on the Gallery page. Both are sculpted from Portoro Marble, which is quarried in Italy. I sculpted the original for my daughter, Rachael, to celebrate a special birthday. It was lost (yes, lost) in transit to her home. I was compelled to create The Second Rachael and I am happy to say that it arrived safely.
