Page 4 of Soapstone Owls by Clarence P. Cameron of Madison, Wisconsin


 

I can not believe that I now have four pages of my soapstone owls. Some of my owls are freestanding. Those on bases are pinned and epoxy glued to the base for added durability. I should have all of the owls not marked "SOLD," but once in a while, I forget to mark one. T he NEW label next to an owl reflects the fact that the owl is new to the Web site. It is usually a new carving, too, but not necessarily. LAYAWAYS are possible. Just E-mail me for terms.

NOTE: If you have any large pieces, 20 pounds or more, of Montana dendritic soapstone, I will pay top price.

Another signature piece with half the owl's face hiding behind a wing, this is a nice example of Montana soapstone. Even though there are no dendrites, there are nice flecks of iron, here and there.

The owl is absolutely stunning. Every time I unwrap one of your owls I get the same feeling I have since buying my first one from you. The detail and beauty just makes me so appreciative of your talent that allows me to enjoy my love of the best raptor of all. Now, before I get too maudlin and it goes to your head, I'll just say thank you for my latest owl, dear Clarence, and for being my Owlman.

Another piece of Chinese panda stone turned into two angular owls that are either conjoined or not speaking to each other. The black and "white" pattern is obvious but I don't recall any areas of translucency. It is carved on three sides but the back is smooth and polished.

The owls are 3.75 high, 3" wide, and 1.25" thick. They sit on a dark-stained cherry base 4" x 2.5" x 1" high.

Hello, Mr. Cameron,
I wanted to let you know that the #9 pewter owl arrived safe and sound yesterday.  It is very nice--even more impressive "in person" than in the
pictures on your Web site.

The coloration of this owl is quite interesting. The iron influences the color on all sides except the back. There is a streak of iron on the tail, then the soapstone becomes much whiter.

 SOAPSTONE #23L

The mauve coloration is quite rare and comes from the same area as most of the other pieces shown. Geologists have told me that the manganese, that forms the dendrite also causes this color. In the larger photos, notice the two streaks of much darker mauve. Nice! It is carved on three sides and the back is smooth and polished. The owl is about 4" high, 3.25" wide and 2" deep.

It is mounted on a triangular piece of cherry (I think) which is 4.5" x 2" x 1".

I love to polish a finished piece and have this combination of colors pop out. The manganese swirls in a dark purple or slightly mauve (for me, anyway) on a lighter background. Mounted as it is, perhaps this should have been a fish rather than an owl. However, I like to put them in odd poses, if the stone allows or insists. The owl is 2.5" high, 4.25" wide, and 2" deep. It is mounted on a cherry base which is 4.25" x 2.25" x 1" high.
