Bird Soapstone Carving
Bird Soapstone Carving by Frances Pelly is a decorative stone piece, inspired by traditional Netsuke sculptures and Inuit carvings. Frances crafted this sculpture to connect others to the tactility of the material, by creating a form which is irresistible to touch. These miniature sculptures are inspired by Frances' Orcadian surroundings - both naturalistic and agrarian - and are typical features of the island’s fauna and landscape. Accustomed to working with harder, locally-sourced stone, carving in Asian soapstone offers something of a respite for Frances within her practice.
