Impressed by handcrafted architectural sculpture

Carved Stonework by Hunt Studios
I was just clicking around the net when I ran into Hunt Studios, a studio which produces handcrafted architectural sculpture in stone, metal and cast materials.
It just amazes me how a master carver like Nathan Hunt and his artisans can take a chunk of stone and create such objects of beauty.  I'm just in awe.

The process of stone carving is far form ornamental metalworking, which is what we do here at Potter Art Metal Studios, but the two are gorgeous to look at and work together so well.  We have made wrought iron fireplace screens and tools for the most gorgeous stone carved mantles out there.  Our lanterns are beautifully hung on fabulous carved as well as cast stone columns and arches as well, and we simply adore to see others work compare to our own in beauty as well as quality and support great artisans in general; after all, there are so few of us out there.
