stone carving tools with chisels hammer for stonework

Stone. Hard, durable, monumental. For much of art history over the last 3,000 years, stone has been the material for sculpture. One look at Michelangelo’s Pieta and you’ll want to throw your hammer and chisels in the trash (and the fact that he made it in his early 20′s will make you question the point of your life). But moving forward, the artist working in stone will
find a hugely rewarding medium, full of variation, colors, attributes and potentials. The learning curve is steep, but even the most basic of accomplishments can be intensely rewarding.
