Paul recently passed through Carrara on one of his regular buying trips and and to explore new material.
While searching for particular hues that evoke the feeling of horses (more on this later) he discovered some real beauties. One was this beautiful clear white onyx that resembled fossilised ice more than stone.
He also found this stunning Red Jasper below.
These trips are such an essential part of the creative process, to stimulate ideas and projects. Walking through the stoneyards and talking to the stone specialists opens new pathways for Paul’s work. And the sunshine helps.
Paul had a trip to France last week to set up some pieces sent ahead to Monaco. The work was installed at a new exclusive members club 39 Monte Carlo. I’m sure that the good followers of Paul’s endeavours are highly likely to pass through at some point so when you do, head straight for the terrace to check them out.
After the summer season it’s nice to have a meaty project to complete and get everybody back into the swing of things.
These fantastic Carrara heads are no exception. They are a commission for a large project in Lagos, Nigeria that has been in the pipeline for some time. They are in the final stages of polishing now, and if we can just get the paperwork side complete (much harder than the making it currently feels like) then they will be on their way in the next few weeks!
