Our Sculptors

David Klein MRSS

Carving limestone is like carving through time, slowly revealing layers of this jurassic rock laid down 200 million years ago under the sea.

My principle interest is in form and line, its endless possibilities to calm, excite or surprise the eye whilst always being a uniquely physical encounter.

Whether working closely to the human form or exploring more abstract relationships, the process of both modelling in clay and carving stone is at once intensely enjoyable and deeply engaging. It can seem almost a process of meditation within which a more intuitive and distantly familiar set of rules apply.

I feel proud to be working within the figurative tradition; it can span times and cultures, connect us with our ancestors and hopefully be intelligible to generations to come.
