The Wave – Sculpture

I love working with marble.  My greatest joy was being able to capture the power of the wave in a stunning piece of stone.  I was working with two fellow surfers Dave and Donna and asked them to stop me when they felt nervous about the paddle! I love the fact that people just stand and rub their hands across its beautiful surface for ages while staring at the top of the barrel!  My eternal thanks to my mentors Giovanni from Florence and Graham Radcliffe from Mt Glorious Australia. Both master artist's of world standing and great friends and teachers.
This piece weighs approximately 60kg and is 60cm long, 31cm high and 20cm deep

Product Description

My biggest challenge to date.  Gorgeous Italian Marble.  I worked under master Sculptor Giovanni Balderi for this one. It is based on my favorite break in the world Lennox Point.  A fast and steep wave with a rather strange take off.  I am pretty hopeless at surfing this one but get great joy out of watching my much more skilled local tackle it on a big day.  The wave is long and fast and wraps around the point like a collar.  The marble capture all the lines of power and speed in the wave with a slowly cresting face.  A deep barrel finishes off the feeling of power. I must admit every time I look at it I remember the times I ALMOST made it before going backwards over the falls!   Oh well. It took 4 weeks to complete,  was hand sculpted and finished with 13 grades of paper.  Because it is marble it is ALWAYS cool to touch.  It weighs in at about 60kg so its not light but has been in demand globally (I am humbly proud to say).
