from common yard, field and beach stones
I started this is 2013 in Paros, Greece with soft marble beachstones --leftovers from the quarries where Michelangelo got his marble.
The stones are carved with a simple penknife. At a local hardware store, I bought a small 3-sided rasp to rough some of the shapes and some different sandpapers to finish them off.
This process allows me to experiment with Enough?
What's Enough? in size, in crafting, in finishing, in shaping?.
It is not an easy set of questions to answer.
Each level of enough-ness has its own messages;
Some make you simply admire the Maker;
others invite you into the materials;
