Soapstone Owls - Page 1

 

 

The owl of Minerva flies at dusk

My discovery of soapstone began in 1983. A major challenge is in "finding" the owl within the rough chunk of stone. Occasionally, an impurity or fissure requires a change from the original concept, but this often adds to the interest of the finished piece. The shape of the stone thus determines the shape of the owl.

Without the use of power tools, carving becomes a gradual scraping away of the stone. I use files, rasps, knives, and dental tools, and then polish the piece with various grades of steel wool and rubbing compounds. Finally, a coat of carnauba wax is applied to provide some protection and to enhance the colors.

Soapstone is a hydrous magnesium silicate, a form of dolomite, geologically named steatite, and commonly known as talc. Metamorphic in nature, it is usually found at altitudes of 5,000 to 7,000 feet, and is mined in both open-pit and underground mines. The mineral has a smoothness which makes it pleasant to touch, and its name comes from the fact that it is as slippery as soap when wet. It is used in the cosmetic, paint, paper, and ceramic industries, and is the basic ingredient in talcum powder. Soapstone is very soft, (#1-3 on the Mohs scale with diamonds at #10), and excellent for carving, but if care is not taken, it can easily be scratched or chipped. At the same time, it loves to be felt, and oils from the hands only enhance its beauty.

Found all over the world, soapstone is best known through the unique carvings of Inuits (Eskimos), Chinese, and some African tribes. I have carved soapstone from the Appalachian states, Washington, India, Africa, and Australia. But most of the soapstone I use comes from Montana. It is called dendritic soapstone and the dark blue-grey, mossy patterns are called dendrites. Dendrites were caused by manganese seeping into the soapstone sometime during its formation. Unlike the veining in marble, the dendrites do not run all the way through the piece. The sculptor has little control of their placement as they disappear and reappear during the carving process.

Dendritic soapstone is rare (especially large pieces) and it is, thus far, only found in southwestern Montana—by coincidence, near a town named Cameron. Within a quarter-mile area, along with the white, dendritic soapstone, there are patches of mauve (pink), blue, and gold dendritic soapstone. These colors are even more rare and in some places the basically white stone mixed with them to produce still other colors. The stone is asbestos-free and is highly coveted by sculptors, despite its relatively higher price.

Care should be taken to display the pieces in a protected location. Oils from handling cause no harm. An occasional dusting is all the cleaning required. Washing, and especially soaking in water, is discouraged.

NOTE: If you have any large pieces, 20 pounds or more, of Montana dendritic soapstone, I will pay top price.

 

 

The photographs below and on the three other Soapstone pages represent several of my owls currently for sale. Many of my owls are freestanding. Those on bases are pinned and epoxy glued to the base for added durability. I should have all of the owls not marked "SOLD," but once in a while, I forget to mark one. Watch this site for periodic updates. And remember, these are all one-of-a-kind, so don't expect, look for, or want to order a duplicate. The NEW label next to an owl reflects the fact that the owl is new to the Web site. It is usually a new carving, too, but not necessarily. LAYAWAYS are possible. Just E-mail me for terms.

NOTE: If you have any large pieces, 20 pounds or more, of Montana dendritic soapstone, I will pay top price.

NOT IN MY BACK YARD

Not in My Backyard was selected for the 2014 Birds in Art exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. This prestigious, international "bird art" exhibition is a highlight in any artist's career and this was my twelfth time (the fourth time in a row) to have a sculpture accepted.

In 2015, it was included in the Wildlife Biennial XVII exhibition at the Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.

Not in My Back Yard, was selected for the 56th Annual Exhibition of the Society of Animal Artists, to be displayed from September 23, 2016 through January 1, 2017 at The Houston Museum of Natural Science.

NIMBY is another piece of dendritic soapstone that I received from a sculptor in Montana. The piece was a bit intimidating. I looked at it every day for over a year, and it didn't talk to me. Then I decided to just rough it in and, suddenly, it offered me three ways to carve it. (I hope I chose the best way.)

The owl is approximately 12.5" high, 12" wide, and 8.5" deep. It is sitting on a dark-stained cherry base that is 2.25" high, 9" wide , and 13.5" deep. (This is one of the last, large pieces of dendritic soapstone available to me. Large pieces are extremely rare.)

Price: $10,000.00

Perhaps it is wondering why the moon is so full or why the moon is there at all. Carving this Montana dendritic soapstone owl used most of the stone, and you can click here to see what the rough stone looked like. When sold, I still hope to be able to submit this owl to a few exhibitions in the next year or so.

The owl is 9.5" high, 7.5" wide and 7" deep. It sits on a slab of Vermont slate, which is 2" high and 8" square. (This is one of the last, large pieces of dendritic soapstone available to me. Large pieces are extremely rare.)

Watchful Waiting, a dendritic soapstone owl by Clarence P. Cameron of Madison, Wisconsin

WATCHFUL WAITING

Watchful Waiting was one of sixty pieces to be selected for the year-long Birds in Art tour in 2013-2014.

 

WATCHFUL WAITING

After the 2013 Birds in Art exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, and its going on the year-long touring exhibition, I am honored and delighted to report that Watchful Waiting has been selected for the 55th Annual Exhibition of the Society of Animal Artists, to be displayed from August 28 through October 25, 2015 at The Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History in Jamestown, New York. This prestigious, international "animal art" exhibition is a highlight in any artist's career and this will be my third time in a row to have a sculpture accepted.

Amazingly, I was working on the piece above, when I received this stone from a friend in Montana. It wasn't until I polished this piece that I found the similarity in colors to Waiting for the Moment, a piece I had done for a high school classmate and her husband for their 50th wedding anniversary. I had no idea that this piece was even more "colorful."

The owl is approximately 11" high, 9" wide, and 5" deep. It is sitting on a slate base that is 8" square and 2.5" high.

What a huge rush!  What a sublime justification for the very existence of the stone.  Unlike that which usually happens, the wanting and expecting were much outdone by the having. Thank you very much. 
Dan B.

NOTE: Dan passed away on June 4th of 2007. He was one of my very best customers, though we only knew each other for eight months. He came into my life for a very short time but gave me the incentive to go back to carving, more with his use of words than with his purchases, although they were considerable.

NEWSOAPSTONE #1

While this is a tiny owl, with attitude, the small piece of soapstone is quite rare, as it contains iron to produce its color. This is still dendritic soapstone, but the manganeze did not form dendrites, but only left a few swirls of color on the back ot the owl.

The owl is 3+" high, 1.5" wide, and .75" deep. The dark-stained cherry base is 1" high and 1.5 " square.

Although quite angular, this owl still has a lot of character. You could hardly ask for a nicer example of Montana dendritic soapstone. It is fully carved on three sides with some carving on the back, including the tail.

Check out the larger photos. The owl stands 4.75" high, it is 3.5" wide and 2.75" deep. It is mounted on a natural walnut base that is 3" square and 1.75" high.

I don't normally work in this stone which, I believe, is from China, but it is just about soft enough for hand tools and offers me variety and different challenges. Although it has many fractures, it holds together well, and has a nice, translucent quality. This owl definitely has attitude.

Overall, the piece is 6.25" high. The owl is approximately 4.25" high x 4.5" wide, and 3.5" deep and is carved all the way around. It stands on an oak base, 3" x 2" x 1" high.

This owl is carved in Montana dendritic soapstone and ended up, not only on a triangular wooded base, but an acrylic base below that. He sits backwards, looking over his wing. Carved on three sides, the back is smooth and polished.

It stands 4.75" high, 2.5"wide and 1.75" deep. The dark-stained cherry triangle sits on an acrylic base which is 3" square and 1" high.

Occasionally, a customer will ask to trade a soapstone owl for a larger one. I have no problems doing this, as long as the piece is in pristine condition. This mauve color, as the one above, is rare, and manganese supposedly causes this color, too. It was carved in 2008.

The owl is about 2.75" high, 1.5" wide, and a little over .75" deep. It is carved on three sides, and the back is smooth and polished. The base is cherry and .5" high x 1.5" square.

Looking at the photo, this owl appears quite small but it is a pretty hefty piece. The larger photos show the coloration much better than I can describe, being a bit colorblind. Some would say that the face of the owl shows better from another angle. but you can be the judge of that.

The owl is 6.25" high, 4" wide, and 4" deep. This would look nice on a low table or shelf.

The photos don't do this owl justice. This soapstone is from Virginia, and it laid on my desk for a number of years. The shape of the stone intrigued me. It is quite a bit harder than dendritic soapstone and, therefore, much harder to carve with hand tools. It is carved on three sides with the back fairly smooth and polished. I must admit that the piece didn't polish as well as the Montana stone does....at least, for me.

There are also small half-round "feet" that go on the base. Forgive me for not including them. The owl is 5.25" high, 2.5" wide, and 1.25" deep. It is mounted on an acrylic base.

SOAPSTONE #31

As the larger photos reveal, this is a nice piece of stone representing a quite angular owl. The dendritic pattern varies from intense to subtle. This owl is pretty much carved on the front with the rest of it smooth and polished.

The owl is 3.5" high, 5.5" wide and 3" deep at its widest point. It is mounted on a natural walnut base, 3.75" x 3 " x 1.25"

SOAPSTONE #32

The pose of this owl intrigued me, and I hope it gives you a whole new slant on life. Excuse my puns, throughout. It has nice dendrites and is a good example of Montana's rare soapstone.

The owl is 2.25" high, 1.75" wide, and about 1.75 " deep at its thickest part. It is mounted on a walnut base, which is 2.5" square and 1" high.
