For over three decades, stone has been T Barny’s passion. Abstraction is his fascination and power tools are his forte. T Barny creates beautiful seashell-like forms that speak to you visually and make you feel good when you touch them.
The T Barny studio is located in the beautiful Alexander Valley in the Sonoma County Wine Country of California. It’s where the stone dust flies and fine SCULPTURE emerges. Take your own studio tour by clicking on videos in the GALLERY and STUDIO pages. Check out NEWS for current shows, studio happenings, and gallery openings.
A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, T Barny takes his exploration of shape and form to a new level of science and design. By using ancient carving techniques in union with modern power tools he creates visually stunning Mobius, Curvilinear and Superellipsoid Designs in bronze, wood, water, steel and stone. From 1 foot high table top sculptures to 12 foot tall corporate monoliths, he releases the inherent
forms he sees in these materials.
In his 30 year career he has taught stone carving in California and New Mexico. He has been an artist-in-residence in Carrara, Italy; Tinos, Greece; Woodstock, New York, and Garden City, Texas. He has shown in 80 different galleries, and he has participated in over 300 group and individual exhibitions. Art collectors note him as a wise investment and his pieces hold prestigious placement in collections internationally.
