This is a compilation of stones, which I carved and put together, after finally finding a strong enough glue. The bottom large piece is sandstone. The pillar is black marble. The platform is black marble. The two figures on the platform are from blue Italian and orange alabaster.
The figures represent a man and woman who walk side by side and add strength and balance to one another’s lives. It’s called High Together.
Apologize that two of the photos are a little dark and one closeup is fuzzy, but it gives a glimpse of what came together.
Back to Back
These two rock creatures are stuck together like glue (actually with glue). I shaped them from a piece of Oregon river rock (granite) and orange fluorescent alabaster.
It is called Back To Back. Hope you enjoy the photos. They don’t quite bring out the clarity or grain as some close-ups would have done.
Here is the latest touching poem from my friend Jerilyn Elise Miripol.
The Summer of Stones
The summer of stones,
Trailing along the Buddhist parkway,
A garden of solidity
This temple embraces me
As I view the purified altar,
A liturgy of karma.
I also postulate in the euphoric
Bursting lotus blossom
Replicating the light of the One
Who guides me out of my affliction
With the wonder of
The seraphic essence of healing herbs,
Dissolving my corporeal pain
Here are a few views of my latest stone carving.
It is from a block of black Mongolian marble.
It’s getting better all the time.
