There is much to tell ...


A first blog, from our house of sculpture workplaces . . . a small white brick house, a sunny cobbled courtyard & stone walled garden with potted plants, trees & wooden seats . . . where we have lived with Rima, Jan & Maya since the summer of 1986.
Have a look at our website.. www.staines-sculptors.com
We have always worked freelance, carving wood, stone & plaster, modelling with clay & Plastiline & moulding & casting using resin bronze, iron & plaster.
And colouring our own & commissioned sculpture, drawing & cutting letters in wood, stone or slate & undertaking restorations.
There is much to tell . . .

Congratulations on your new blog! Rima speaks so highly of you on her blog that I had to come over and see for myself. Your work is so beautiful and I look forward to reading about a day in the lives of two extraordinary sculptors.

Welcome to the world of blogging. I look forward to reading about your lives and sculpture adventures. I am a sculptor too and adore your work having discovered you a bit back. I hope to have such a lovely body of work one day. You are both an inspiration. PS. I adore your daughter too and told her that if she ever makes it to Pittsburgh she had better stop by our house for some fun and food! Same to you both. I wish you much success. :o) Amy

We thank you ALL so very much for your interest & encouragement!

I found you from Rima's blog/site, which fills me with joy and hope every time I visit it.
I saw your gallery site, first, and I just love your work - so glad you have a blog. I have put it on my own nonblog blog's bloglist. I'm just a random art blog fan - not an artist, myself. I started the blog in order to thank those artists I visit, like you, whose blogs don't accept anonymous comments.
Thanks for your beautiful, spirited work!
