Georg Scheele, born in Frankfurt, Germany, now
lives and works near the small village of Alferce in the Algarve. We first saw
Georg's work at the São Lourenço Gallery just outside Almancil in
March 1998. That exhibition was a sell-out and we were delighted when Georg
agreed to produce some new pieces for Stenton Gallery.
We have now visited Georg twice in his small outdoor studio high in the
mountains above Monchique. Each of his scuptures is hewn from a large slab of
pink Portuguese marble before being hand polished.
