Capturing a Moment in Time

When a certain grandfather saw the light and joy in the eyes of his young granddaughter, he knew that was an emotion he wanted to save, and a mental photo just wouldn’t do.

He commissioned Abraham to create a bust of his granddaughter, smiling with her teeth still coming in and hair blown a bit, as if she had just been playing outside.

After meeting the young lady and taking many photos for reference, the process began. Beginning with a clay maquette, Abraham was able to carve and easily adjust the bust. After the moquette was approved by the client, it was time to select the stone, a beautiful white marble, and get to work.

The gallery below shows a few of the steps, and the gorgeous finished product. Hopefully this will be a reminder to always celebrate the child inside for the granddaughter, as well as be a constant joy for her grandfather.
