***Dozen Muli-Colored Rose Stone Sculpture*** Sold!
This wonderful creation from Mother Nature is a member of “The Rock ‘N’ Roses Collection,” a variety of stone flower sculptures that have been created from various types of stones that were collected by the artist John Foster. They were collected from a variety of quarries and places ranging from Western Canada to Eastern Alabama.
Like all other blossoms in the collection, these Rose blossoms were carved under water using diamond tools.
The stones are Black Marble, Green-White-Black Brucite, Mauve Soapstone, Pink Marble, Green-Black Serpentine, Butterscotch Marble, and Butterscotch Onyx.
The leaves and stems were hand formed from treated steel and brass. The Smoky-White Quartz base — which is highlighted with green Jade, golden Citrine, and green Jasper gemstones — was discovered in its present form. It was carved smooth on the bottom with a diamond saw.
The entire composition is coated with crystal clear acrylic to protect from stains and to bring out the beautiful natural colors of the stone. The entire creation is held together with high-tech permanent glue and solder. It is signed on the bottom with the date of creation, as well as felt pads to protect your furniture.
This piece would make a wonderful gift to a loved one…or to yourself for table art that will forever lift your spirit. It is a treasure that will last a lifetime. I am sorry to see it go.
