Marble sculptures and artworks : Joey Marcella is the owner of the stone business "Mario & Sons". He enjoys sculpting away through the most expensive Carrara marble. A heavy two cubic carrara marble which weighed over 1200 pounds was used to create his masterpiece 'Aura" which weighed 80 pounds. To create the 'Aura' marble sculpture, a metal ribbon was bent and twisted until the desired shape was acheived. A 3D digital image was created and a 3D model print of the sketch was created. The 3D printed marble sculpture was used as reference to create his sculpture. The Aura Sculpture took 13 months of chipping and couple more months for designing and polish. "I choose a block of marble and chop off whatever I don't need." by Auguste Rodin.
