Jake Harvey at the Edinburgh College of Art working on the Stone Project.

Jake Harvey is Emeritus Professor and former Head of Sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art.
Jake’s carved sculpture predominantly draws inspiration from archaeology and architectural configurations and spaces. In the process of working he subverts the geometry of his carvings with intuitive, as opposed to measured calculation. A key element is the shaping of invading and peripheral space. Retaining the indexical mark and other traces humanises and provides an implied provenance for the work.
