Harvesting Stone

One of my favorite types of carving marble is Cherokee White. My sculptures Treble Clef and Persia utilize this beautiful stone. It comes from the Polycor Quarry in Tate, Georgia. Here are some pictures of the quarry itself, taken last year. It was a wonderful experience to stand in the hot sun, listen to the wind, and hand pick the boulders that caught my eye. I was struck with the rather poetic notion that I was pulling my own future out of the earth.  You can visit Polycor Georgia Marble at
