About
Rachael de Freitas

Based in brighton, United Kingdom. member for 6 Years

I am drawn by the simplicity of the process. I use no power tools, toxic chemicals - Just stone, the raw body of Mother Earth - mallet, chisels, presence of mind and awareness of body. It is a slow process, andin a sometimes hurried, chaotic, noisy world, the stone speaks to me always of the value of patience and stillness.
My inspiration comes from shamanic dreams, ancient folklore and mythology. But at the core of my work lies a wonder and respect for the Earth, the wild and wonderful creatures who roam it and the Deep Mystery that encompasses all.
I find in every stone a secret wating to be born, a silent beauty, a hidden power, a shard of lost wisdom. Something that perhaps was always there but lain forgotten undr the rock of ages, slowly reveals itself with quiet dignity. Carving is a mediatative and spiritual practice for me… it is alchemy… it is my prayer.
