a quick piece with little thought behind it beyond balancing a large sheet of rock with as small a contact area as possible. the mid-sized rocks are essential to the balance of the large base stone, and were carefully placed while supports underneath were present. the smaller stones on top are non-essential to balance, but add personality to the bases they sit on.
it was lightly raining as I worked here, and the sheen of the rocks is not something I usually work with. stones take on a second life when wet – a personality you’d never know about, with new colors and a sense of depth that a dry stone never hints at.
