By Gordon Punt, MFA
All Photos & Drawings are by G. Punt
The Following are excerpts and highlights
from Gordon's journal written in 1985 describing his experience
in Carrara Italy. He had just finished earning his Bachelor
of Arts degree at Sonoma State University and was on his way
to Italy to start working on his Master's Degree in Fine Art.
This journey recounts what it is like to live in Italy as
a sculpture student, get marble from the marble mountains,
interact with the local population and authorities, make drawings
from nude models, and carve stone sculptures in the winter
with no heat. This journal also includes drawings and photographs
he made along the way. We will be adding more parts of this
journal as time goes by, so please check in every month or
so for updates. The original journal is 90 pages. His Masters
Thesis was made up from this journal, but it is not yet available
to the public. Enjoy, and thanks for your interest.
