Ralph Crawford 

 Stone Sculptures...

​Ralph's stone carvings seem to be  emerging from the stone in enigmatic ways, full of mystery and difficult to understand how something so unmoving seems to be doing just that!​  Ralph has been perfecting his stone carving technique over time, just as the masters did, and his figures emerge gradually by removing the stone judiciously and altering the stone bit by bit.  Stone carving, is the  ancient art of rough natural stone being shaped by  controlled removal to the desired imagined image of the artist. Owing to the permanence of the material, mistakes are made into opportunities.
