Jill Smith - Stone Bowls
My bowls are carved from local stone and some specialty stone sourced in Newfoundland. I would classify them as functional art. As a lifelong rock hound, bowls seemed a great way to expose the inner beauty of our local rocks. It is always challenging to carve the harder materials such as red jasper, porphyry and breccias but so rewarding to see the polished colours and patterns. Most of the stone that I use is too hard to work by hand and so I rely on angle grinders, diamond blades and cups, hammer and chisels. There is a wet polishing process in which I use a pneumatic polisher and diamond pads. The process start to finish is time consuming but absolutely rewarding.
