”Now, faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.”

Hebrews 11:1-2

Whether it is a work of fine art, private memorial or monumental public feature installation, the hands of a gifted artist transform these all into much more than static pieces of stone and bronze.  Inanimate media virtually comes to life by ways and methods many believe to be lost art in the modern world.  The results are breathtaking and truly hard to believe.

The Virtual Stone Carving Apprenticeship playlist on #carolinasculpturestudio offers opportunity for individuals to understand and learn the craft in-depth as it is done in a professional venue.  This is not an artificial classroom or expensive weekend workshop setting, producing arbitrary projects as example and presented by those who have never depended upon this work for their living.  It is a comprehensive and free-of-charge presentation of all aspects of the craft, from facility to tools to all else that has proven to be relevant over Button’s career in stone.  This extensive & ongoing archive of professional insight serves as a humble homage to his many Masters while archiving the truth they shared with him for future generations.   Obscure and fabled skill sets- from the proper use of plumb blocks to indirect carving using compass and triangle to enlarge, reduce or reverse a model into the job- are presented in their entirety as they are employed to produce actual commissioned studio projects.   Whether utilized for individual growth in the studio or trade or as preparation for in-studio personal instruction, the VSCA presents a unique chance to better understand this world of professional stone craft-

He’ll be very excited.”  response from Ann Janiak, during interviews for American Monument Association’s Stone In America Jan 2007 cover feature article
