Artist statement

This piece was an experiment and a challenge. I had been asking myself the question: Can one stone be enough? As I pondered this thought I looked to my limestone gravel driveway and decided to start chopping it up. By varying the size, directions, and andamento of what is essentially the same stone, I was able to create a composition that, I think, proves the fact that, Yes! One stone can be enough.
