Peter Martin has been fascinated with the beauty of stone since he was a child who was constantly bringing home rocks of all shapes, sizes and colours and decorating his bedroom with these treasures.
Since retiring 10 years ago he became serious about creating interesting and beautiful sculptures from soapstone and alabaster, which are his stones of choice.
When creating a piece he seeks to use shapes and colours that will be true to the subject he is working on but occasionally he will push the boundaries and use different colour of stone that will catch the eye and highlight the beauty of each part of the sculpture.
Peter hopes you will also see the beauty of stone as he does.
Peter will next be in the gallery on August 12th.
