Soap Stone Sculptures: Box Hill H.S.

These works were photographed by Max Darby in November, 2013

 

The soap sculptures below are some of those made by junior secondary students at Box Hill Secondary College. Soap stone is a steatite stone and is mined like granite and marble. Its primary are components are magnesite, dolomite, chlorite and talc. The talc gives the stone a soft feel like rubbing a piece of dry soap and it is easy to carve.

 

More information will be included as it becomes available.
