A breaching humpback whale is a solitary event but elicits a group gasp as the spectacular leap rises and rises and then falls with a tremendous splash. This whale is mounted at that moment of maximum rise and anticipated splash.
I think I had more fun thinking up a name for this iguana sculpture than making it. This creamy soapstone finishes to a high shine easily, compared to other stone. The high shine contrasts well against the rough matte finish stone. The iguana is hugging the rock as iguanas do. His legs and tail wrapped in the crevices.
Loon and Chick
You can’t see from the photograph but this sculpture is from a unique material, black pearl soapstone. Close examination reveals many small “pearls” on the surface. This commission was for a woman who wanted a sculpture that reflected her husband’s Muskoka roots. What better than a loon?
