SIERRA ART TRAILS 2016
Yosemite Foothills Open Studio Tour
Friday, Saturday & Sunday September 30th, October 1st & 2nd 2016
The upcoming 2016 Sierra Art Trails open studio tour has many talented artists. The Sierra Sun Times will be featuring a sampling
of several area artists each week leading up to the show. Check back regularly to see who the next featured artist will be.
I began reducing rock to lithic art/stone tools in 2011, focusing on knives in antler which I haft, sinew wrap and seal. I began carving handles from local and exotic woods in 2013.
These are not weapons or a representation of such. They are a representation of an important link from the past, from our ancestors, who without their ability to create stone tools for survival, we may not exist today. Everything which now exists, is a progression of a development process to improve what was once just an idea…..stone tools, the wheel, fire and the computer age.
The difference in the need for utilitarian tools to Lithic Art, is the unique and exotic material used as well as a technique which is closer and closer to a flawless art form. Prolithic Creation stone tools are an art form for display and wonderment.
Many of my hand crafted stone implements are replicas of actual tools used throughout prehistoric times. The style of stone reduction, to an eventual tool, is either percussion, pressure flaking or a combination of the two. Marvel at the complex beauty in these stone works, as well as the detail which is accomplished by striking one surface with another.
My desire is to create a unique art form which offers a feeling of satisfaction when admired on display or while held in hand.
