Advanced Sculpture

We love a rose because we know it’ll soon be gone. Whoever loved a stone?
(The Twilight Zone, tv series)

Us! We love the stone. Strong and stubborn, secret and armoured, cold and difficult. We love the stone because it stares at us and it challenges us to look into ourselves and show and use the courage of our hands. The pantograph and the old school techniques are your companions in this experience where you will dig inside yourself to find images, emotions, thoughts and strenght to report on your stone. Get yourself into modern advanced techniques and use them together with the old ones to realize your own artwork: all-round sculpture, bas reliefs and high reliefs will be the result of your search and courage.

history of the stone, from its geological composition to its extraction process, pantograph description, detailed measurement methods, advanced mechanics, technical and chemical techniques, details design, high technologies.
