Louise’s creative process is inspired by the materials and how that speaks to her, which is then conveyed through the materials.
“Most things are hard for me, especially IT and ‘words’. I work through the material – usually stone – I smell, feel, look and touch the material and search for the simple message.”
Louise mostly works with natural recycled stone such as marble, travertine, slate and limestone. The stone is cut and faceted using a hammer and hardie and underpinned by traditional Ravenna techniques. Louise describes the creative process as sometimes like a singing through the stone – each piece a note – and informs one note to the next note. It informs a notion of song.
