Welcome to my virtual space, I am Gaetano and I love to carve stone. I discovered this passion as a boy, when I took stones and modeled them in a simple way, according to needs. I remember that I gave one stone the shape of an ashtray, to another that of a mortar. All without any artistic pretense ... I showed my first creations to some friends and I was amazed to collect a lot of support ...
This gave me the impetus to continue, to learn, to improve my doing, and so since then, I have begun to breathe the dust and I have begun to sculpt with determination, love, passion.
Today I love making creations, working the stone with simple tools, such as the hammer, the awl, the chisel. Tools to be used now with determination, now with delicacy, depending on the need, the work to be done, the material being sculpted which can be onyx stone, white statuary marble, Cassino pearl stone or other.
Working with stone is a passion that requires patience, which leads me to find my right dimension, my serenity and that is why, when I can and I participate in craft fairs, I always show live how much my mind, my hands, can realize, and receive compliments from those present, makes me love more and more this passion that I carry on with love.
