“Koi Roliquery,” 2007, 12-in. diameter, limestone and sand
Amy Brier’s work has been described as a “sculpture that makes a sculpture.” Her signature, interactive art involves carving a large piece of limestone, then rolling it in sand to see the patterns left behind. “The real art is the pattern in the sand,” Brier explains. “It’s a carving in sand.” Her other pieces have a more classical, handworked element rooted in her early training at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York and the Cathédrale St-Jean in France. Now both a teacher and artist, she is also the co-founder and director of the Indiana Limestone Sculpture Symposium. Brier was featured in the December 2005 issue of AmericanStyle.
