"Holding You Close"

William Chewa

  • “Holding You Close” is a modern abstract  garden sculpture from William Chewa’s collection of “Expressions of Love”. This garden sculpture is hand-carved from Lemon Opal stone. Unlike other forms of sculpture it is impossible to replicate the identical patterns that are found within the Serpentine stone. It is possible to see minerals within the stone making the piece seemingly translucent. The rich red/brown colour is achieved by leaving the one side unpolished. This allows the garden sculpture to be viewed from both sides, or can be turned to provide a different garden perspective. This ornament is one of our large garden statues and would make a striking garden feature.

    While depictions in African stone sculptures may repeat, the patterns in the Lemon Opal Serpentine stone cannot be replicated, making each large garden statue unique. The artist carves the stone using a diamond tipped chisel. It is then sanded for hours through varying degrees of sandpaper until smooth. The sculpture is then heated and a polish is melted into the stone. Finally it is buffered to leave a wonderfully tactile surface, almost irresistible to touch. Enquire today on 0800 772 3253 or get in touch by email,
