Within The Maiden Collection’s 41 sculptures there are a handful that assume a deep significance as they, in one way or another, played the role of game changer as the giant slab of Colorado Yule Marble slowly gave up its secrets.  .   The Demure One came along fairly early in the carving process and the experience I gained from tackling this formidable block of marble served me well in the coming months.  What struck me about this block was the extreme contrast that manifested itself in such a pure white vein running its entire length, and the brutally tough granite that lay just inches below the surface.   The grayish mass of granite (cooled magma) that runs through her made for heavy and slow going. The shape?   It is quite extraordinary.  Well that came along and developed as I carved.  But once I had completed The Demure One I instantly recognized that I had reached a turning point from which I could now continue to build upon until every last piece of the 10 ton slab of stone was gone.
