Digital Stone Project

The Digital Stone Project, founded by Jon Isherwood, is “changing the nature of the art” of stone carving.

The Digital Stone Project is offering summer workshops this year in Tuscany, Italy, as part of their partnership with the Garfagnana Innovazione, a state-of-the-art technology center equipped with robotic stone cutting equipment and access to the best sculptural marble in the world. Through the workshop, artists can "experiment with cutting edge [stone sculpture] technologies.” 

This shift from traditional carving methods to new technologies is "exciting, but also very challenging," said Isherwood. He refers to the process as "giving your hand away to technology."
