Stone Talk

“A sculptor is a person obsessed with the form and the shape of things, and it’s not just Ihe shape of any one thing, but the shape of anything and everything.”
Henry Moore

Podcast I recommend

The Sculptor’s Funeral by Jason Arkles is perhaps the only podcast out there entirely dedicated to sculpture. In each episode, he delves into the life and work of one specific sculptor, from Donatello, Michelangelo, Giambologna to Rodin and back to Greek Antiquity. Just listen to the first few episodes and you’ll be hooked!

Article to read

And since yesterday was her birthday, here’s an article telling the story behind Brenda Putnam’s statue of Puck at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC.
