Soapstone Carvings by Barry Kostiuk

I started carving in late 2010 after taking a 2 day carving course from a well-known carver.  I fell in love with carving after finishing my first piece. I like the feeling of taking a raw piece of stone and working with it to create a piece of art.  In some of my work I leave part of the stone raw to show the beauty of both the before and after.

To me carving is not only a way to express myself and my creativity but it is also therapeutic.

I also do repairs, commissioned work, as well as Corporate Awards.
