In England it is impossible to be more than 50 miles or so from the sea, and throughout the years I have spent in my home country I’ve taken every opportunity to devote as much time exploring the coastline as was practically feasible.  This may explain why so many ship shapes found their way into The Maiden Collection; “boats are in me blood”. The block for Titanic was split from the band of pure white marble that ran the length of the Maiden Collection ten ton slab.

As number 24 of the Maiden Collection’s 41 sculptures I had the benefit of 23 separate forays into the properties of this particular slab of marble before I ever laid a tool upon Titanic’s rough block, and so I decided to set the bar as high as possible and carve a bowl so thin as to be practically translucent.

Without the incredible technological gains in diamond blade and abrasive pad technology that has developed relatively recently there simply is no way I could have carved Titanic.  Just what the ancient Greeks would have thought of the equipment I have at my disposal I can only guess,  but you can rest assured that if the ancient stone carvers had have had the chance they would have grabbed my angle grinder with both hands.  Professional stone carvers have always embraced the latest technology available to them, and what I wouldn’t give to see the reaction of my ancient predecessors on seeing my Titanic for the first time.   I could well imagine the impassioned debate, as they mulled over the question of just how he was made – as we carvers are naturally prone to do.

So, wherever you place Titanic, as long as it is served with plenty of direct light, it is certain to receive a lot of attention;  place him in a sunny window and he will positively radiate,  place him in a shady corner,  add a little soft candle light, and the bowl will exude a soft flickering glow.
