“This is a very stylized female form that was made for outside, surrounded by plants. The fossils in the limestone quarried in Central Texas reflect it’s origin by this Texas sculptor. A original, smaller version for an interior was created for a client and has crushed turquoise in the some of the shell forms.
BFA Studio Art, University of Texas, graduate study in sculpture, I first sculpted in wax for bronze casting and exhibited those in many Texas shows. Later I began carving stone, using alabaster, marble and later limestone.I was represented by galleries in California, Arizona, and Texas.
I was a Charter member of the Texas Society of Sculptors which began over 40 years ago, later exhibiting in the first show at the Georgetown Library 12 years ago.I taught the first stone carving classes at Laguna Gloria Art School in Austin and continued for 11 years until an injury ended my career in stone.” Mary Paige Huey
