Stone Scrapers

My stone scrapers are individually made from 5/16 in. and 3/8 in. high carbon tool steel. Each one is hand- forged to last for many years of use on Carrara marble or similar type stone.

Sculpture, Form and Philosophy

The opportunity to learn from an artist of Weygers’ caliber is rare. It’s even rarer that a master artist puts pen to paper to describe in detail his theory of and approach to art. Sculpture, Form, and Philosophy is an extraordinary treat
