ZOE WILSON CARVING | WAM CAST #0009

The postcast content and the PoWe took at trip to visit the lovely Zoe Wilson in her workshop in Houghton, Hampshire, England.

"Continuing the tradition of skills passed from master to apprentice has shaped my career and is at the heart of my work. My stone carving is simple in its manufacture, using only a mallet and chisel, but born from a wealth of knowledge gleaned over the years from highly skilled craftspeople. I once read that craft is the “seemingly impossible skill of making something by hand. Perfectly.” This is precisely how I feel about carving.

For me, craft is also about the personal relationship between the maker and the material. I feel a huge amount of respect for stone as a raw material and feel a responsibility to always strive to create pieces worthy of it. " - Extract from Edition four of We Are Makers - Zoe Wilson.
