Every now and then I get asked if I can turn a sculpture base - Yes I can.

Alabaster Sculpture Base sculpturebase1
I recently turned a group of lamp parts and for each part was left with a nice block of round stone mounted on the lathe. Rather than trash them I made these bases. They are all 3 1/4" in diameter, have a hole through the center for securing a sculpture and vary from 1/2" to 3 3/4" high. Click any base for an up close view and details. Prices range from $35 to $125.

These two were made to custom specifications.

Here is a socle for a clock by Clodion and Lepaute in New York City's Frick Collection.
