Sherry Tipton, Pregnant Torso, 2009 Colorado Alabaster, approximately 14" x 8" x 8"

Commissioned by Merrilyn Artmann for Boulder County Midwives. The form lent itself well to pregnancy and I was thrilled to see how the colors of the stone wrapped around her belly so beautifully. It is serendipitous moments like this that make carving stone so compelling.
