New Personalities

These stone experiments often develop little identities as I work on them.
This one seems to be about balance, finding a center. He fits in the palm of the hand very smooth and dark except for the one rough area, there have been turbulent moments that have left their mark.
These two are twins, but not identical... they do want to stay together. Each is smaller than a dime together their impact is greater, and they know it. They both have finely grained surfaces, one in cool tone one in warm.
Here we have that moment of decision, the hub from which anything is equally possible. Finely speckled the stone is a bit porous and absorbs moisture from my hands easily as I work.

Seeing the commonality in the opposite view, glimpsing our oneness. Smooth, ever so slightly greenish, gray slate
both of the above are about the length of a finger joint on my very average sized hands.

Oh, so they are small. I sort of thought they were. They are little jewels, each one.

You see personalities. I tend to see faces. Seems no matter how you wrap them, I see a face there.

Yes they are small, some very small. Mostly because I like to collect so many at once. I have considered doing some larger ones sometime, I guess I will have to go back to the beach!
