The specific medium I have chosen to work with, Beaver Canyon andesite, is a slender highly colored lava rock that takes the form of curious spires and columns. I chose it not because it’s the rarest, though it is, nor the most beautiful stone on the planet, though I also think it is. I chose to work with these columns because they draw me. I have devoted myself to their fullest potential. We hand select every column for each of our custom designed fountains.
My artistic intention is to alter this natural material as minimally as possible while accentuating its appeal by focusing on the composition and presentation of the columns. I hope you see what I see and feel the natural attraction of this wonderful ancient stone.
