Courtyard Elegance! 'Water Spirit' by William Murenza

This beautiful courtyard installation was recently completed by Stone of Shona clients Rex and Jann for their Brisbane home. Highlighting the versatile and contemporary nature of Shona sculpture, this artwork by William Murenza, called 'Water Spirit' was handcrafted from Fruit Serpentine and produced in the traditional Shona method.
 

Divine Inspiration-Stephen Murenza's latest work

Stephen Murenza has an international reputation for quality commissioned sculpture for a reason.
He continues to produce collector quality sculpture for Stone of Shona clients across the globe.

He is is without doubt one of Zimbabwe's hottest artists and Stone of Shona is proud to be working with him on our latest commissioned work for St Teresa's Catholic College located in Queensland, Australia.
His latest work in Springstone, 'Family' was inspired by the colleges desire to commemorate their 10th anniversary with a sculpture of Mary, Joseph and child. After completing the design concept, Steve set to work four weeks ago selecting the stone for this worthy project.

After a four day round trip from his home base in Harare to carefully select the raw Springstone, he was ready to start work on the artistic process. Skilled Shona artists 'see' their creation in the stone before the first blow from the chisel.

Over many weeks, the sculpture emerges under the patient hand of the master, like the change of a season, to reveal its new character.
After a three month process, the 'Family' sculpture is installed in its new home at St Teresa's College.
Kaylene Ryan, Brother Paul Creevey and Mark Roberton  officially welcome their new sculpture during its installation.
