Art in the Garden

P1300989.JPG

The first art at Edenlight, long before she revealed her name, was a fairly simple circle of stones, none very large, in the far corner. Being a landscape contractor, I had better than average access to different kinds of rock. I was soon having visions of standing rocks and began acting upon them. This led to diamond blade angle grinders, and eventually Dremels and countless diamond bits that I generally didn’t use enough water with to extend their life. Eventually tons of minerals from our Earth were arranged in a one acre mandala grid, many decorated and inlaid with precious and semi-precious gems. Many pieces took 3 or 4 months each to complete.

Although much of my education was in art and design, sculpting had not been part of my training. It came of necessity, and I was frequently pleased to have techniques and skills appear not previously used in this life.
