About Michelle de Bruin

We love the highly intricate and detailed stone carving of Michelle de Bruin. She is heavily influenced by the elaborate stone carvings of the Etruscans and the Assyrians, and other historic stone sculptures. In her work, she places great emphasis on the ‘craft’ of seeing, which is then translated into the craft of making.
