“Phoenix I”
Alabaster on granite base
13″H x 10″W x 7″D
San Juan Island

Artist Statement:
Stone sculpture is about cracking the surface to see what is inside.  Sometimes what lies beneath is a hidden flaw.  When that happens, the artist’s plan may change dramatically.  Phoenix I is a rebirth caused by a hidden fault in the rock (or in the artist?).
