Mark Hetherington

I carve various types of stone largely influenced by artists such as Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, I also teach pottery classes

I have been fascinated by the beauty of stone ever since I found a tiny fragment of rock crystal in my back garden when I was about ten years old, but though already developing a passing interest in sculpture I didn’t really make any connection between stone as a material and sculpture at the time. In fact having studied art and art history at A level I went on to study geology for my degree, and it was only much later when I was going through a creative phase in life did I decide to combine my knowledge of the properties of natural stone together with my interest in art and turn to stone carving. I have now been carving mostly in stone for some 28 years. More recently I have been running a clay workshop at Kelham Island Arts Collective.
