David Baughan

Sculpting is a process of consciousness and realization.  My sculpting process originates with an idea, an inner form in need of becoming conscious.   It is a breaking of the surface, like a tool carving the stone releasing form into physical matter.

My philosophy is that sculpture is forming within my inner world.  Without sketches or models I begin to sculpt.  Each stroke of the hammer on the stone brings me closer to the emerging form. As I move into the stone intuition acts as a guide to bring my work into consciousness. On another level, this creative process offers interactions of the unconscious with consciousness, healing the self and the collective while serving as a reminder of health and wholeness.
