Before teaching himself to carve stone, William Edmondson worked at a hospital. This sculpture is of a nurse. Notice her long hair, her posture, and the position of her arms. How do you think the stone might feel if you touched it? Smooth? Rough? Bumpy? Edmondson liked making sculptures of people from his everyday life. Who would you make a sculpture of, and what materials would you use?
