Signed and dated. By being fascinated of old wisdom symbols, I carved the four elements, this small abstract sculpture represent a flame or the symbol of fire.
I can carve your original idea from this type or other available stones. The four element symbols are also available on stone coasters.
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.
I bought a few of Gabriella’s stone carvings as props for my mala and jewelry photos and I love them both. The carving is minimalist yet detailed enough to convey the spirit of both the stone and the animals. Her work is top notch and the order was very well packaged and arrived very fast. Thanks Gabriella!
