Soapstone Owl Sculpture by Frances Pelly. Frances crafted these sculptures to connect others to the tactility of the material, by creating a form which is irresistible to touch. Accustomed to working with harder, locally-sourced stone, carving Asian soapstone offers something of a respite for Frances within her practice.
Dimensions: Height: 7cm, Length: 4cm, Width: 5cm
Care Instructions: Wipe with cloth
Frances sources inspiration from drawings and photographs, and then carves directly into the soapstone using rifflers, hacksaw blades and needle files. The piece is then finished with sandpaper.
Frances Pelly has worked as a practicing sculptor since completing her postgraduate art degree in Dundee, having resided in Orkney since she was invited to be an artist in residence at the Highland Park Distillery more than 30 years ago. Frances draws a lot of inspiration from her surroundings, exploring the local land, seascape and flora in her unique forms. Frances has also travelled internationally with her work, having also completed notable residencies at Fort William Library, The Eden Project and on Baffin Island.
