stone – franklin booth

I’ve had stone on my mind today and I guess that this choice of post reflects that. People brought quite large pieces of  stone from quarries in the UK and I spent much of the afternoon meeting them and sorting out the samples and trying to judge what was the best for us. The subtle difference between the colours (and ‘figure’), and the effect of the surface finish on the luminosity of the material run across broad ranges. To see stone in drawings means that someone else saw those distinctions and made choice as to what to show, just as we are trying to make judgements and choices. Just for a moment, we see through the artist’s eye.
