Marrow: Schist

commissions, small works, vegetables

Completed  a new vegetable  – a marrow! Sculpted from a stone found in the garden. Its a schist of some sort, much harder to carve than limestone. It has a greenish tinge to it and the quartz vein gives it interest.

Dimensions: 1.5 ft, heavy!!

Sold: Private collection.

Martin Lyttle is a recognised Irish stone sculptor. With a sensitivity to the local lithology of an area, Martin works only with local Irish stone from quarries or found stone. He is interested in organic shapes and forms especially those found in nature. Much of his work is hand-polished so his works are wonderful to touch and hold. His work has been selected for the Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibitions and he has completed large scale public and private commissions. He is a member of FORM designmade in Carlow and the Blackstairs 9 Stones Artists Groups.
