Seven Stones

Seven Stones was inspired by the artist’s travels in Italy, of which the countryside of the Napa Valley is so often reminiscent. “The broken columns, fragmented soaring arches, and crumbled porticoes of Italian ruins are very powerful to me as a sculptor, not only for the objects themselves, but as entire environments tangled with myth, circumstance, and imaginings. It is this emotional and physical interaction that I hope to capture with this sculpture and environment.”
