Rookie Soapstone Carving
Rookie Soapstone Carving by Frances Pelly is a decorative stone piece, named after a young rook that Frances reared many years ago and inspired by her love of birds from the Corvine family. 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.
