Sculptors: Mike Leckie with assistance from Chris Beck.
Mike Leckie came up with the design for this piece through envisioning her inside a standing block of marble. The ‘Reading Girl’ is a classic yet simple piece that has beautiful movement as the little girl reads the book.
Marble sculpture engages the artist completely. Not only is it a labor of design, but the focus has to be complete, as marble is unforgiving. One broken piece cannot be pieced back into the body of the sculpture.
The marble for the Reading Girl was hand-selected by Mike Leckie from Carrara, Italy.
