This brown barn owl carved from a solid piece of soapstone, that actually sold as green by the supplier. However the brown color is more intense, and it looks like a camouflage pattern. The sculpture carved in minimalist style, that’s what the nature of soapstone allows, yet detailed enough to represent the characteristics of a brown barn owl. Video here.
It’s an original carving by Saga, Gabriella Canadian sculptor. Hand carved with traditional hand tools, polished with standard water base sand papers to a shiny and smooth surface finish. Stands on a beige, kind of egg shape limestone base, that polished as well. Signed and dated. Authentication certificate attached with the purchase of the sculpture.
8.5″ x 6.75″ x 4.25″ 21.5 x 17 x 10.5 cm 4.435 kg.

Soapstone is a wonderful carving medium for professionals and amateurs equally. The wide variety of colors inspires one to carve lovely figurines or artists to create a master piece sculpture.
It doesn’t require expensive cutting equipment, basic hand tools such as rasps and files for shaping, and sand paper for polishing is sufficient for finishing a piece.
Soapstone carving is a great educational occupation for children, and a life-long hobby for everyone.
Suppliers offer soapstone by the pound, and art shops in blocks by piece for prices.
We offer small 2″-4″ cut offs as well by the box, ( about 7-8 lb ) for beginners to practice.
