Sculptor AC Button II founded Carolina Sculpture Studio in 2003, extending his family's unbroken USA heritage in granite excellence since 1891. Utilizing both direct and indirect methods, his work covers a wide array of subject matter and media. From carving wood from age 6 in 1973 to award-winning work in ice in the 1990's, Button's transition to stone sculpture began with family apprenticeship under his cousin as they worked under Master Sculptor Gary Sassi at Celestial Memorial Sculpture Studio in Barre, VT. As a Journeyman, he moved south and established Carolina Sculpture Studio following the retirement of in-law and Master Sculptor Dario Rossi in nearby Elberton GA. Button sculpts full-time for top USA Granite Industry manufacturers and retailers, municipal, public & private patrons and other artists & sculptors. These videos provide a brief glimpse into his world of stone, marble and bronze. Visit http://www.CarolinaSculptureStudio.com for more work by AC Button II.
