About the Stone

The stone used in these mountainscape sculptures is from around the world.  Some of it is easy to obtain and some of it is difficult. All of it is purchased from importers, miners, stone merchants, or individuals.  Some of the stone can be bought at Home Depot and some of it must be purchased from the mine or quarry.  To obtain some of it you must know the name and phone number of the person who has it.  Some of the stone was once intended to be a floor covering.  All I really care about when I purchase it is that it be beautiful. 

Whenever possible I buy the stone already cut into slabs.  In this way I can see what I am buying and have very little waste.  The slabs are then cut, cleaned, “sculpted”, and finished into individual mountains.  All of the colors are natural colors as they came out of the earth.  I don’t add any color to the stone at all.  Some clear sealers are used to provide shine and strength. 

Nature does all of the difficult and time consuming work on my sculptures.  All I really try to do is combine it and present it in a way that makes you feel good.

    The sculptures that Jerry creates bring the wild outdoors right up close and in your face. Making use of the textures, colors, and contrasts found in natural stone, he successfully creates a wilderness that is soothing…and mysterious at the same time. The work is tranquil yet uncontained. The medium provides a perfect pallet for “working outside the lines”, and environment where he seems to be most comfortable.
