Minimalist cat sculpture recently finished light green soapstone carving. The light green soapstone has a flake-like pattern and silver glitters that are very spectacular in daylight. It’s a Brazilian-origin carving stone from a certified supplier, inspected for asbestos and harmful materials. It’s a traditionally hand-carved minimalist cat sculpture, shaped with mallet and chisels, detailed with rasps and files. Polished submerged in water with various grits of sandpapers up to 2000 grit smoothness and shine. Sealed and buffed with natural nontoxic bee wax.

Signed, and comes with a hand-signed authentication certificate.

Soapstone is a metamorphic rock found in many places on earth in different colors and a bit different in hardness too. It’s a 2-3 on the stone hardness scale of 1-10, which means it’s relatively easy to carve with basic hand tools. Can’t say the same about the polishing. It’s a very time-consuming process that starts with 100 grit and doubling the fines of the sandpaper and sometimes takes longer than the carving itself.

    Super in love with this contented little kitty carved from soapstone, she is the perfect prop for my mala bead and jewelry photos. The subtle and enigmatic look on the cat’s face is priceless! The shipping was very reasonable considering the weight, and the parcel arrived quickly. Gabriella’s work is top-notch, and I highly recommend SagaStone.
