Edinburgh Festival: Living Stones

Chance to see sculptors chizel, grind, sand and polish rock in this open exhibition at the Edinburgh Collge of Art.I loved seeing them using their callipers, lists of numbers and templates. It's a rough old game stone sculpting - lots of hard work interspersed with moments of calm measurement and reflection. Some of the work was stunning and would make a fine sculpture park. From the limestone and sandstone there was a purely geometric right-angled boxy shape, a rectangular chasm in the side of a large glacial boulder, nodules left standing on the surface of a round, chizelled rock, rock tubes sprouting from one side of a boulder, the other left untouched, a sheep and slabs of pink sandstone. Great idea and free!
