For me, the piece had grown smaller, or the space around it, larger, in the time I’d been away. It was in pretty good condition considering its isolated location with no real monitoring or supervision. From along the top edges, stones had been dislodged and lay on the carpet of dry leaves that had built up on the floors of the cells. I felt for its vulnerability, but was reassured by its durability. https://www.dansnowstoneworks.com/2017/11/17/diamond-mines-2/

A week on Sørvær in Northern Norway kept me immersed in the land and enveloped by the sea. Grasping the totality of the archipelago’s grand and sweeping vistas was a heady experience. https://www.dansnowstoneworks.com/2017/11/05/art-above-the-arctic/

A recent artist residency at AARK in Finland’s western archipelago allowed me the freedom to make something from nothing. There were no tools at hand and none of the materials I’ve grown accustomed to for making artworks. The islands were swept clean of loose stone by the last ice age, leaving a landscape of bedrock, worn smooth. Enough soil caught in low pockets to start the growth of the forest that now thrives there. It was in that birch and evergreen forest that I found my moss muse. https://www.dansnowstoneworks.com/2017/10/04/something-from-nothing/

Acceptance of whatever is offered by a stone supply clears the way for what’s there to fully present itself. Doors open when one truly wants to know what’s on the other side. The more that’s sought, the more bountiful become the returns.

My personal choice for satisfying the desire for hands-on interpretation of the earthly elements is the manipulation and configuration of loose stone. https://www.dansnowstoneworks.com/2017/07/29/granite-jenga/

Besides being a delightful get-together with an amazing group of landscape professionals and devotees, for Robin, David and me the day was a personal celebration of our long friendship.

Complementing a garden that’s a feast for the senses, Isosceles is a slice of free stone pie with a flaky granite crust. http://www.dansnowstoneworks.com/2017/05/26/isosceles-stone-wall/
