Geomorphology

To sculpt rocks that resemble Mother Nature one has to truly understand the processes of geomorphology or the movement of rock. Geomorphology occurs either slowly (erosion, wind, water) or suddenly (earthquakes, landslide, flooding).


Motion

A rock might appear like a stagnant form to some but we see rocks as a story-a story of millions of years of internal and external forces shaping summits and eroding cliffs. Rocks are a results of Earth’s dynamic processes creating structural transformations through such things as weathering and movement.  


 

Plant Crevices

Nature is extraordinary in that one tiny seed carried by the wind can land within a rock crevice and become a thriving plant. Plants growing within rock crevices bring life to the rock features.


 

Talus

When smaller pieces of rock erode from larger rocks it is called talus. These usually result from the forces of nature such as weathering or earth movement.


 

Color

Our coloring process is more than just applying paint to a rock form but a thoughtful application of pigments to tell a story how Mother Nature would through natural processes.
