“Fearless” is an original sculpture hand carved out of a single block of alabaster.
The initial roughing out of the shape was done using primarily a hand held grinder with various diamond encrusted carving blades as well as other attachments designed specifically for stone carving. Another primary tool I use for allot of the initial carving is a pneumatic chisel and air dremel.
The more intricate details are done with the air and electric dremels utilizing very fine bits sometimes as small as a sewing needle.
After the initial carving process, there is up to 6 layers of sanding to achieve the desired polish. The final steps is to seal the stone with a stone sealer which also brings out the color of the stone. A final buff of the stone using wax is also done for a layer of protection as well as to enhance the final surface of the stone.
This piece is also available for viewing at Fathom Stone Art Gallery in Whistler, BC, Canada.
