William Royall

Southport Island, ME
Medium: stone
After nearly 40 years of working with stone, I have come to a place where my studio, equipment, employees and income allow me to produce large scale sculptures that represent the essence of stone and crystallize my beliefs about sculpture.

Unlike many of my contemporaries, I choose to work in stone rather than bronze. I find that each stone piece is unique. I can get textures that have the natural feel of the hand, carving rather than modeling, and I can achieve colors and rhythms via the organic qualities of stone, which cannot be achieved in castings.
