Jonathan studied at The Tom Bass Sculpture Studio School, Sydney; Australia’s oldest and most respected Atelier style school and served as a board member for several years. During that time he had the privilege of learning with highly respected sculptors and teachers Wendy Black and Ingrid Morley.
‘I work with most traditional mediums but several years ago began focusing on Marble Carving, participating in three intensive workshops with Carrara, Italy-based Master Carver; Alnassar.
Since then Carrara marble has become my medium of choice. I carve in the traditional manner, with hammer and chisels and other hand-tools, taking many hours to complete my works.
‘At the time of writing I’m hoping that my newly ‘under-constructiion’ studio will be completed in time for KOAST’, says Jonathan somewhat nervously….watch this space!’
