Colorado Marble

This beautiful sculpture is carved out of Colorado White Marble, which is one of the finest marbles in the world. Quarried in the mountains South of Marble, Colorado, it has been chosen for a number of national landmarks, most notably the Lincoln Memorial. It is the wispy light grey marbling that give Newman’s sculptures a luminous surface that polishes well. Quarrying in this high altitude environment with steep slopes, deep snow, and snow-mud slides is so difficult that advances in technology have not been able to overcome many of the challenges. The first major use of this silky white marble was in the Colorado State Capitol building in 1895. Today, Colorado White Marble can be found in banks, libraries, schools, hotels, and government buildings from the west coast to the east coast.
Daniel Newman graduated from UCLA in 1958 with a degree in Engineering. Daniel has been sculpting since 1970 and working in stone since 1973. In 1989, Daniel retired from his career as an engineer and moved to Sedona where he built a home and studio and has concentrated on sculpture. His recent work features horses and the human figure in a soft stylized form utilizing various types of stone such as marble and onyx.

Most of Daniel’s work is contemporary with stylized anatomy softened to present a graceful flowing line when viewed form all angles. Daniel strives to create a feeling of lightness and fluid motion in his sculpture.

Daniel has taken life drawing and stone sculpture at UCLA and has studied advanced stone carving techniques under master sculptors in Pietrasanta, Italy. He has taught stone sculpture in classes at the Sedona Arts Center, and gives instruction to private students.
