Scottish sculptor Ronald Rae first discovered his passion for carving granite at the age of fifteen. Now approaching seventy, his dedication to granite remains undeterred despite the physical and mental effort that carving demands. Working intuitively with only hand tools, he is able to convey the tenderest of feelings on to one of the hardest stones in the world. Some of his sculptures are for public places but most are of a size that can be placed in a garden setting.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
