Mark Rietmeijer, sculptor and friend. In April a new block of marble arrived in his studio. I decided to make pictures of the creation of his new work of art.
So from now on I'll upload pictures on a regular base, showing the
process of creation.

The block is 50x50x75 cm. and weights 550 kg. It is called Bardiglio and comes from Carrara (Italy).

Before drilling a hole in the base they have to know exactly with which angle it has to be done.
