I am currently working with stone, which I find less yielding than clay. Although it requires a degree of effort, I find working in stone immensely satisfying and restorative.
Working with stone, for me, has an aspect of collaboration between myself and the stone itself. The stone seems to have a being with which I can commune and together we find its form.
I have the benefit of working in an inspirational space alongside other sculptors at the Hoathly Hill Studio.
