Gideon was taught to carve stones by his uncle. It is a tradition in his family to pass on the skills to the next generation. Gideon’s speciality is working with Verdite stone, which a semi precious mineral. Gideon is interested in abstract pieces which allows creativity as there is no limits to the art form. Gideon does not restrict his art to abstract but also enjoys carving animals such as elephants and rhinos.
