Raspberry Alabaster, Aluminum


This stone contains large fossilized sea shells.  The shape resembles stone eroded by rushing water over time.

A continuation of the series of variations on the Mobius strip that is turned in upon itself.  The sculpture is on an aluminum base.

In this variation, the Mobius strip is pulled and stretched in a vertical direction.  The raspberry alabaster has a beautiful pattern and color.

I began this sculpture in W. Rutland VT at The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center while studying with internationally renowned sculptor Carlos Dorien.  The separate pieces of carved stone are notched and made to look as if they were balancing upon each other.

A rectangular piece of marble was split into four pieces using slips and wedges.  I then carved it to appear as though the parts had shifted, creating an optical illusion. The drill holes give it away as not having shifted at all.

The origami crane has become a symbol for peace.

The stainless steel mandala stands above a beautifully colored and patterned piece of New Mexico onyx stone.

A cast dichroic glass crane image is inset into the stone.

An abstract sculptural landscape.

A waterfall streaming down to a pool of water.

Quarried in Arizona, this onyx reflects the vivid colors of the desert landscape.  Like the landscape, the stone can be rough or worn smooth. Holes are eroded through the rock by the elements.

The colors and patterns in this stone are a glimpse into the formation of the ground we walk on.  It is the shape of beginnings.

Sometimes the only way to see is through touch.

I had the image of a floating figure, as if in a dream.

The sculpture is figurative, but also abstract.

When I got the stone it had been cut in the shape of a  triangle.  The odd shape was a challenge.

An unusual shape forces new and different thoughts.

After many drawings, a maquette was made and sculpting began.

Watch the YouTube video of it's creation...

This is the third in a series of images that are wrapped or bound.  The form being wrapped can loosely be seen as a figure.

I am always amazed at how stone is formed in the earth.  The crystalline shapes in this piece bloom like flowers.

Scholars in China would search the river banks for unusual stones that they used as objects of contemplation.  I decided to make my own.

Energy Vortex is carved from Indiana buff limestone.  I started carving it at the 2007 Limestone Sculpture Symposium in Bloomington IN.

This is the latest in the series of the progression of the Mobius strip variations.

The curved forms of this composition in alabaster stone wrap around and create a sense of holding or enfolding what is within.

An abstract image of a figure emerges from this beautifully colored onyx stone.  This sculpture would be a wonderful addition to any landscape.

Joyful shapes leaping up to the sky.

Starting out as just abstract compositions, they finally emerged resembling musical instruments.

Limestone is combined with oxyacetylene cut strips of steel.
