I find it extremely difficult to summon the words with which to express the importance to which I attach to this carving.  Without Mabel’s vital contribution during the early stages of The Maiden Collection I can safely say that the whole concept of developing a Curvilinear body of work would never have materialized.  For in sculpting this piece an entirely new approach to my carving was to take place without my ever knowing it:  it was at the moment that I hit down with my hammer and blew out the entire central core of this piece – with a single blow! that my newly acquired format of creating direct method reductionist marble sculpture was born.   From this point in time, and as the block that was to become Coliseum came hurtling out from within the heart of Mabel, I instinctively knew that the fine art of splitting marble, and sculpting Curvilinear creations with the resulting blocks… was the life for me !  And to this day Direct Method Curvilinear Reductionist Sculpture and I remain on very good terms indeed.
