Inspired by the first line of Vasalis's poem 'Time'.
When you talk about stones and times gone by, the idea of Stonehenge quickly emerges. In this sculpture I play with this fact of antiquity, and moving around in time. The rough sides still refer to the old stone. The carved part to get moving.
The sculpture is made of two pieces of Celtic brown, an Irish bluestone. Part is rough, part carved with the pointed chisel. You can vary how you arrange the two parts together. The stone is also suitable for outdoor use.
Size: 2-piece, 70 x 20 x 20 cm and 60 x 18 x 20 cm
Based in: Utrecht
Fieke de Roij, stone sculptor, based in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
My sculptures are clear and abstract. They are created intuitively, by combining shapes and materials. While working I searche for simplicity, tension and balance. The sculptures evoke an atmosphere or association and give room for individual interpretation.
I uses a form language that is universally recognizable and appreciated worldwide. You can find my work in private collections across many countries.
After years of working with all kind of materials, in 1994 I discovered stone sculpting. From that moment my choice was made. With the start of my company ‘Werk in Steen’ in 2005, I wanted to further professionalize my working as a sculpture and create a place to convey my love for the profession.
Since 2007 I organize classes stone sculpting in my studio in Utrecht city. And also summer courses on locations in The Netherlands, Germany and France.
In 2019 I celebrate my 25 years of stone sculpting and the many years of teaching.
