I have been commissioned to carve an Art Nouveau sculpture which will be installed at Highgate cemetery in London. I still have about a weeks work left to finish this commission, hand carved out of Portland limestone. The brief was inspired by a Liberty style pewter platter of a beautiful elegant and strong woman. My customer didn't want an angel or a stone carving that looked too melancholy. I have been restricted by the size as well. so I am working to a specific set of dimensions.
