Sandstone Alphabet by TOM YOUNG

Sandstone Alphabet by TOM YOUNG



The design started with some sketches that I’d completed. I’d been looking at monoline letters and had carved something for a client that was much bolder.
Here, I wanted to keep the forms as fine as possible and developed the alphabet with similar shapes throughout, but with extended elements that made connections between letters and to the outside edge of the stone. I reworked the design until I felt that there was an even overall texture - trying to make the letters appear initially as a pattern before emerging as an alphabet.

Crosland Hill sandstone 71 x 32 cm.
