"I refer to myself as a stone carver, not a sculptor. I believe that sculpture is the process of building an object up whereas carving is the removal of the medium to expose an object.”
His passion for art comes from his engineering background where, during in time in this field, he was inspired by the exacting detail, symmetry and strength that is required to create machines, buildings and structures.
Although Stewart has done some free form pieces, he prefers to create pieces that reflect mechanical movement in an inanimate medium such as stone. “My objective is to give people the want and need to touch or move parts of the carving. I love the feel of stone; both whilst carving it and when it’s finished - it cries out to be touched."
