The StoneBale is a response to a client request for a site sculpture that could define a particular field. It is also an extension of an idea I proposed in my 1984 Master Thesis from UGA in 1984. While at UGA I traveled to Japan to study temple gardens and their dry-stone landscapes. I was so inspired that I developed the idea that similar abstract stone landscapes could be used to tell a story about the human use of New England landscapes where remnant stone structures are so evident. The attached video link is about that evolution of thought in a walk-around the StoneBale.
The next video will be about the building process with the stone masons of Full Circle Stone Works.
