Silverdale- Sculpture with Gothic and Sullivanesque influences 
Walter S. Arnold, Sculptor/Stone Carver  
Carving Limestone, Marble & Pixels 

Chicago, U.S.A

[*] Do you ever look up and see strange creatures clinging to the sides of buildings? Do you wonder how they get there? Well, the answer is here- through the ages, in all cultures, sculptors and carvers like myself have created these works of art to add a touch of delight to the urban fabric. [grotesque hamburger eating][*] There are a lot of images in these pages; sculpture is a visual art that takes a long time to create. These thumbnails are smaller than 11k, and clicking on them will display a picture that is under 60k; so I hope you'll take a few minutes to view them and to enjoy the way I bend and shape this suprisingly fluid material.
[*]So, come inside and learn how stone is quarried and carved, find out about the tools, techniques and traditions of carving, and see the incredible varieties of marble available.
