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.

I was invited to the Limestone Sculpture Symposium in Bloomington IN as a master carver to teach figure carving.

I started this figure carving at the symposium and finished it up in my studio later.

An abstract sculptural landscape.  A waterfall streaming down to a pool of water.

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.

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.
