Re: The stoner life...

I wish to correct an error. My description of the late stone sculptor Allan Houser was incorrect. Allan Houser was a Chiricahua Apache. As well he was described as a "Modernist".

Native stylization is prevalent in his work but what got me is was his use of drum beat music and ti ming it with his chipping patterns. Talk about Zen. The magic of this attitude is easily felt although my pieces had no drumbeats I worked at the rhythm idea. A repetitive rhythm creates some kind of path for a form in the stone not planned for. I got the feeling the stone was using me to become what it wants.
