Sculptor Quotations

Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.

Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor.
Alexis Carrel

The best artist has that thought alone Which is contained within the marble shell; The sculptor's hand can only break the spell To free the figures slumbering in the stone.

Any working composer or painter or sculptor will tell you that inspiration comes at the eighth hour of labour rather than as a bolt out of the blue. We have to get our vanities and our preconceptions out of the way and do the work in the time allotted.
John Williams

I work a little bit like a sculptor. When I start, my first idea for a building is with the material. I believe architecture is about that. It's not about paper, it's not about forms. It's about space and material.
Peter Zumthor
