Ancient Stones

Last night we had dinner with a young guy who has traveled around the globe looking at the stone works of ancient civilizations. He’s been to Peru and Mexico, all over Europe, places in the middle East. Asia and Africa next; he’s looking for a way to get there.

I have read that the ancient Peruvians believed stones to be alive. I think maybe Michaelangelo thought the same thing.

Finally, when you think about it, stone is what is left and it is amazing what stories it can tell us.

Welcome to my blog where I write about the art and craft of my business.My goal is to make beautiful things, to make art part of everyday life, and to make my friends and family smile. Not necessarily in that order.
