T Barny's works are produced through a method of direct carving, which entails no preconceived notions or models from which to derive the final shape of his pieces. Instead, he allows the natural rhythms of the materials he uses to guide him to a final product.
He imports personally selected stone from quarries around the world, carving his pieces from massive blocks of granite, alabaster, calcite, marble, and 202 other unique types of stone.
Abstraction is T Barny's fascination, and power tools are his forte. He makes use of negative space as much as positive body, establishing an affinity with each piece he carves and evoking a feeling as sublime as the pieces themselves.
The videos on this page detail T Barny's carving process, from rough block to finished sculpture.
“Like all art, the pieces speak to you. In the case of TBarny’s works, his unique interpretations, be they abstract or allegorical, are such individual expressions that they immediately found resonance with us. Our home is a work of art itself and TBarny’s eighteen pieces each have a permanent location that work in harmony with the house. Not a day goes by that we don’t admire the complimentary nature of house and artwork”
