Katharine Stockman, stone carver

I’m a resident of Shelburne, Vermont. I began carving stone in 1999, as an alternative to welding large metal sculpture in our small driveway in Cambridge, Massachusetts. There was an open studios weekend at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts and I was captivated by the stone carving demonstration. My husband and I now live here on our farm in Shelburne where we have the Shelburne Pond Studios.

    Hello,
    I work at Given health in Essex and we talked a little about your studio there.
    I’d like to bring my daughter ( she’s 13 ) to a class to try her hand at stone carving as her reward for an excellemt school report.
    Do I need to book ahead ? Do you have any times at the weekend ?

    Many Thanks

    Hi Kathy,

    I just left the following message on the upcoming events blog page of this website. It may have been better suited for your space here; Gisela Alpert suggested that I contact you in regards to a potential summer outdoor sculpture show:

    “Hello. I am a member of Milton Artist Guild. I am a young artist just out of the University of Vermont. I did a creative arts thesis with a focus on the working landscape. I created a flock of life-size, barbed wire, sheep forms which were installed on a UVM green space in the spring for the thesis installation and were then moved to a summer location on a green space in Stowe as part of the Helen Day Art Center’s “Exposed” show. The flock of sculptures wintered in Milton and are looking forward to growing season in a new location. My friend Gisela Alpert mentioned that the Shelburne Pond Studios venue/landscape might provide a potential residence for the flock this growing season. Please add me your mailing list.”

    Gratefully,

    Tyler Buswell

    • Hi Tyler,

      I’m so sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. Yes, Gisela mentioned you and your sculpture. They sound wonderful and perfect for our farm / sculpture exhibit. Now it’s October. Is it too late. How would they look in the winter and the snow? Shall we talk? Please email me at kastockman@aol.com or call 999-4394.
      Best of luck,
      Kathy
