Peeweet Soapstone Carving
Peeweet Soapstone Carving by Frances Pelly is a decorative stone piece, named after the local dialect word for ‘Lapwing’ (a type of bird) and 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.
