Art you can't steal and run away by Holle on 20 January 2008 7:55pm
 
Anyone wants to become a great artist whose art can't be stolen :-) ... and sold of course :-(.

Way cool! I saw a guy doing this along the waterfront in Sausalito a few years ago. I asked the guy how he did it, and he said, "I'm not quite sure either--I just sit the rocks on top of each other, and as long as they don't teeter, I know it's okay." There's no glue, mortar, or anything--just the rocks. I asked him how long he'd been at it, and he said, "Years." I put a dollar in his hat.

Whatever floats your boat.

When I spent that month in Mendocino in October, I met a guy who is doing this sort of stuff on a really grand scale. He has sculpted five acres into a really amazing place. There are giant stone flowers and many, many abstract stone pieces. He has imported stone from all over the world for their design characteristics.

I left for Mendocino in a hurry to take care of a family emergency and I didn't think to take my camera. I really wish I had pics of what this guy is doing. I've tried to convince him to set up a website but he prefers to spend his energy on moving rock.

He gave me a book, "In the Company of Stone" by Dan Snow but he has exceeded the stone structures in that book. I really expect his place to be turned into a national monument when he is done but he, obviously, won't be done while he has breath left in his body. It is a total obsession for him and it is wonderful.

I'll make sure I have my camera with me the next time I go to Mendocino.
