     There is a lot more to love in stone sculpture than romance.  It is a beautiful thing to feel vulnerable with another, yet still strong in the knowledge of not being alone.  

     In body language, exposing our vulnerable fronts is a show of fearlessness.  But it can also simply be an openness to the world around us. Note the "open book" shape at the top of the figures. That is sharing and caring love!

 

This artwork makes a great wedding or anniversary gift!

 

     Back to Back  is a carving from Colorado Yule Marble.  It is a beautiful stone with subtle grey streaks running a soft diagonal over the male and female torsos that stand facing the world, together.

P. S.  Fascinated by the changing mood and relationship of light falling on form, I included this image to share with you some more . . . ooh la la.

Stone Carving Back to Back Torso Contemporary Art Sculpture 

The Creation of the Stone Carving Back to Back Contemporary Art:

Check out this romantic sculpture I made in Colorado Yule marble.
Two torsos, one male and one female stand "Back to Back" in this marble figure sculpture by Kelly Borsheim. The concept is vulnerability (showing soft bellies) and support of one another, facing things together. The marble is Colorado Yule. It is a white marble with subtle grey and some golden lines in the stone. Really beautiful. The torsos are realistic, but simplified... no nipple detail, for example. The finish is soft, allowing the light to caress the bodies. #contemporarysculpture

Italiano:
Dai un'occhiata a questa scultura romantica che ho realizzato in marmo Colorado Yule.
Due torsi, uno maschile e uno femminile stanno "Back to Back" [Schiena a Schiena] in questa scultura in marmo di Kelly Borsheim. Il concetto è vulnerabilità (mostrando pance morbide) e supporto reciproco, affrontando le cose insieme. Il marmo è Colorado Yule. È un marmo bianco con un sottile grigio e alcune linee dorate nella pietra. Davvero bella. I torsi sono realistici, ma semplificati... nessun dettaglio del capezzolo, per esempio. Il finale è morbido, lasciando che la luce accarezzi i corpi. #sculturacontemporanea

Process:

     This stone was cut from the marble quarried for the artist's carving of the Gymnast (above her head):

     I am a direct carver. That means that I draw directly on the stone and cut what I wish to not have there. The other method is to create a sculpture in some other, more forgiving, material and then "translate it" (copy mathematically) into stone by taking measurements from the original. You may see the Gymnast as a work-in-progress (WIP) on the right in the background.

    Is it not easy to fall in love with marble? Even though the two images above were taken during the final sanding and polishing stages, her beauty is quite evident. She looks soft with the right curves in place and the little crystals (seen easier in the image on the right) are such a subtle splendor.

    The image left showing the lower part of the male torso also gives you an idea of how translucent this Colorado Yule Marble can be when thin enough. I like the contrast that gives me so much change in the light interacting with the stone. The image on the right shows "the wet look." I was having a bit of fun while I was washing off a layer of fine marble dust after sanding, preparing for the next finer level of sandpaper. This sculpture is very touchable, even after the sealer has been added for protection. Enjoy touching and looking!
