Sculpture

For me the contrast between building musical instruments and sculpting rocks is extreme. It is the difference between workmanship of certainty and the workmanship of risk. Regulated planning versus free-form fabrication. Perfect measurements and precise geometries versus experimenting with designs and techniques for aesthetic variety. After years of instrument building, I like the diversity that rock sculpture adds to my life. The freedom to explore a new medium and the outdoor adventure of finding rocks to work with has added a fresh appreciation for the subtleties of my creativity.

All of my sculptures have felt bottoms and my “signature” which is an inlay of a small stone cylinder of a contrasting color. Two part sculptures have a stainless steel pin fitting into a brass bushing. Prices indicate the value of the stones, the cost of tool ware, labor at $40/hr, and artistic merit.
