Alabaster is Dave Foncannon‘s art love. He works intuitively, rarely approaching the stone with a finished form in mind. Power tools are used to rough out the piece, which is then finished by hand with rasps and sanding. The finished piece is cool and smooth to the touch, often pierced or opened to lead the eye through and beyond. DaveI likes to work thin places into the piece letting the opaque quality of alabaster lend itself to the play of light and space.
Dave is a native of Limon, CO, a Mennonite pastor, a mandolin player/songwriter with “Fireweed” bluegrass band, and an artist.
