Students will be instructed in the use of traditional stone carving tools. These tools have been used for centuries around the world by artists carving in stone. Lawrence has been carving stone, including marble, granite and jade for over 35 years. He also specializes in finding his own stone, including jade and will discuss where to look for it and how to identify it.
As an option stone carving kits will be available for students to purchase and take home to continue their work. No experience is necessary, all skill levels welcome!
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
LAWRENCE JUNIPER has been a sculptor artist for more than three decades, working in marble, granite, wood and bronze. He has traveled all over the world, but especially Italy, which sparked a renaissance to his work and the discovery of ancestral tools. For many years his own studio in Bolinas, Marin had been a gallery space where clients, students, art curators, and fellow artists visited in search for an ongoing dialogue. He has worked with youth and the homeless population in San Francisco. His art, which is known as Primal Arts, is deeply influenced by the natural world. His work is reflective of natural, organic and archetypal forces that evoke feelings of reverence for and connection with the earth. At a time when so many have become disconnected from their own creativity, he finds this especially meaningful. In his own creation process, he has come to realize how precious this intuitive knowledge is, and how it has evolved in his own work. His heart plays a central role; and his deepest goal as an artist is to continue to touch and inspire people to open up to their own source of creativity.
His work has been shown in galleries in San Francisco, Marin County and Mendocino County.
