Den Holm MEET:

VOGUE Living Australia - - In Vogue Edit -

Mel­bourne-based sculp­tor Steven John Clark com­bines skills in stone­ma­sonry and tex­tiles to cre­ate fur­ni­ture and ob­jet un­der the name of Den Holm.

“I left school in Scot­land at 16 to be­come a stone­ma­son. Af­ter do­ing my ap­pren­tice­ship I did a de­gree in em­broi­dery in Manch­ester, then moved to Mel­bourne to play soccer. A friend asked me to make a plinth for her

and ev­ery­one was ex­cited about it. It seemed like some­thing I could do be­cause I found it re­ally easy. I love how I’ve fallen into sculp­ture. I’ve al­ready got the tech­ni­cal abil­ity but my years of study­ing fash­ion gives me a dif­fer­ent ap­proach in the way I use the chis­els. It’s com­plete free­dom work­ing with stone. There are no rules.”
