Contemporary Sculpture

We are stone sculpture artists that combines deep appreciation for the natural beauty of stone with an aesthetic that is considered to be contemporary sculpture. Adjacent to our sculpture studio Mendocino ca is a sculpture garden with over twenty five of our hand carved stone sculptures. These works of art range in scale from monumental to table top.

Landscape Design

We have designed many landscape and gardens that include the elements of stone and water
as a focus point. Many of these landscapes have been designed around our stone sculptures.

Stone Sculpture Artists

We use all the tools of the stone carving art. The sculpting is all done only by the two of us. Our tools range from hand held hammers and small hand chisels with carbide tips, to a wide range of pneumatic tools. We also employ many different kinds of grinding wheels, diamond saws and wire saws. And, we always end with diamond polishing pads and different grits of wet and dry sand paper used by hand.

As stone sculpture artists we are asked to consult on various projects in both commercial and residential settings. Locating our sculptures in a design that enhances the existing landscape, architecture, and environment has been one of our strong points. Thirty years of Landscape Design experience with projects noted in Architectural Digest, has allowed us to take on projects involving thousands of tons of stone. These large scale water features and landscapes are forms of contemporary sculpture.

Each of our sculptures is completely different from any other sculpture, resulting in a finished piece that is totally unique and one of a kind. We choose to approach sculpture as a living art form and not from a manufacturing viewpoint. Our pieces are original works of contemporary sculpture.

As well as beautiful works of art, our sculptures create healing spaces in that they transform environments creating
peace and harmony in any setting.

Our newly installed sculpture garden adjacent to our sculpture studio in Mendocino, California offers a personal view into our art and our landscape design. Come and visit us where nature and art combine to create a stunning display of beauty.
