Cal the Stoner
I explore changes in natural stone, through placement in different environments. I begin sculpting when I discover specific veins of sandstone. A large portion of my work is Grampians sandstone, sourced in Victoria. The weight and logistics of larger scale works, led me to begin 'portable' sculptures. The first portable, Stone River #6, weighs 800 kilos. The early works are from the Stone River series. My expanding body of sculpture now includes The Cube, Galaxy Z and The Hedron series. I instinctually follow the natural lines and features of individual pieces of stone to create them as new forms. Based in St Kilda, I travel far and wide, installing and exhibiting my work.
All of Cal’s works are signed with a unique brass plaque, handmade by metal worker Ben Feyen, to authenticate the piece. Cal collaborates with metal sculptor Josh Jones in the Planet series, graphic artist Sian Bundock and web builder Jimmy Foster.
