Based in the Illawarra region on the South Coast of New South Wales, Arenaria creates unique, hand-crafted sandstone sculptures and objets d'art for home interiors, gardens, and other outdoor spaces.
Inspiration is drawn from nature and the infinite variety of colours and textures in Australian sandstones. Arenaria allows the unique features of the stone to be a guide in exploring the beauty and dynamism of asymmetric forms and curves, and to release the flora and fauna within the rock.
Self-taught and constantly learning and evolving, Arenaria uses a number of carving techniques from traditional hammer and chisel to powered grinding tools. Each carving is unique in it’s patterns, colour and final form.
