After reading Merelee's post ref Sculpt Across America and the technique of using small rolls of clay, I was reminded of this artist, Stephen Kettle who produces the most remarkable portraits and sculpture using small pieces of slate - especially this sculpt of R J Mitchell who designed the Spitfire.This sculpture apparently took him 2000 hours to create. A remarkable self taught artist whose site is well worth a visit.

Wow............extraordinary choice of material and amazing result. Especially interesting to me as my own father flew this wonderful aircraft in WW2.
