Crafts League will display Slate Carving

MEREDITH — Join the League of NH Craftsmen – Meredith Fine Craft Gallery and Michael Updike during the month of July for Michael's featured exhibit Stone Canvas'. During July the League will have Michael's work featured throughout the Gallery for sale.

Michael discovered slate carving while trying to source a traditional headstone. The dearth of attractive commercial options led him to design and carve it himself. He honed my carving skills on old slate roof shingles which then became his primary medium.

He uses slate with outward signs of wear; paint, tar, nail holes, fractures, chips, and flaking tell of the slate's former utilitarian life. The scars of its history rest on its surface while he cuts through the patina revealing fresher layers of stone. The contrasting "clean" surface in sunken relief echoes fossils freed from their Mesozoic entombment. Michael's petrified images exist within an artifact of our domesticity.
For any questions call the Gallery at 603.279.7920.
