This stone had little carving or shaping. I spent most of the time sanding and polishing it, to bring out the beautiful greens, browns, blues and whites. It is Mariposite. It is the largest stone I’ve worked on and was difficult to move into the sun, to have a better view of the colors. Am calling it Rainbow.
I’m really happy with my latest stone creation. Of course, it’s not really “mine”, as the materials are all gifts from the earth. I just shaped it in a particular way from a rectangular slab.
I’ve titled it Glacier. A variety of images can be seen within the various shapes, strands and brown veins inside.
It took about two months to carve, sand and polish. It is made from Italian ice alabaster.
Still looking for an inexpensive black stand to place it on.
