Sunday, March 15, 2020

In the mid-1960s Isamu Noguchi began working spontaneously with stone, embracing the unforeseen consequences of his process. He wrote, “Carving follows the possibilities inherent to the stone.” Learn about Noguchi’s artistic process through a close examination of his sculptures in the galleries. Then explore techniques for carving soft stone in the studio, using basic hand tools such as chisels, hammers, rasps, and sandpaper.
