Paul recently passed through Carrara on one of his regular buying trips and and to explore new material.
While searching for particular hues that evoke the feeling of horses (more on this later) he discovered some real beauties. One was this beautiful clear white onyx that resembled fossilised ice more than stone.
He also found this stunning Red Jasper below.
These trips are such an essential part of the creative process, to stimulate ideas and projects. Walking through the stoneyards and talking to the stone specialists opens new pathways for Paul’s work. And the sunshine helps.
