“Creating a carving from a piece of soapstone is very, very interesting to me. I take a look at a piece of rock that I’ve just found; start working on it; and, after a while, it finishes. I like to do several figures in one piece — that’s very interesting to me and it’s quite hard to do the inside. … I don’t use power tools, except to do a hand that is going to hold something. Then I drill. I like to make [a carving] by hand; if I use power tools it’s more somebody else’s than mine.”
