It has been awhile since I posted our #TellAllTuesday blog, which is a fancy way of calling it show-and-tell for all things rock- and gem-related. We didn't have a whole lot to share this year from our actual rock hounding excursions. It's not uncommon to go long stretches without finding anything worthy of posting, so I'm happy to take this time to do my own virtual rock hounding on the Internet and on Etsy. And, I'm quite tickled to share with you the talented artisans that I come across, especially when they're using stones or gemstones!
Today, I'm sharing some incredibly beautiful stone sculptures made by a self-taught sculptor, R. Farabee from Madera, California. He uses mostly alabaster but I also see some gorgeous flourite pieces in his work.
Not only do I love the colors of the stone, but I love how his designs have such a beautiful, fluid, free-flowing movement. I find them quite pleasing and calming to the senses and I can only imagine the patience and vision it takes to create these wonders.
R. Farabee has a shop on Etsy, called TwistedInStone. Pay him a visit and be sure to check out his About page, where he shares photos of the process of starting out with a slab of rock and getting to the incredible finished pieces.
Thanks for joining us for #TellAllTuesday!
