Alice Greene Stone Carving


My love of stone carving began in 2004 during a visit to Tout Quarry, a disused mine on Portland in Dorset.

There standing outdoor in the rain, I learnt how to use the five basic carving tools - the claw, chisel, point, punch - and hammer of course.

I carved stone for seven hours a day over two weeks, lost in a timeless world where the mind undid itself into a clear calm light. Simply watching the hands move and the work unfold, inner thoughts ceased, and with them, all self regard, leaving only a sense of deep joy.

Following the slow steady rhythm of hammer and chisel moving across the surface of the stone, opened up a world of timeless peace.
