Thea Alvin, 'arching' in the landscape

"Arching is peaceful. 
You can feel your body work, hear your breath, contemplate what's next and build, build, build. 
Its a beautiful thing to watch and feel and learn."
~ Thea Alvin, sculptor, of Vermont, USA

If you want to know more about working with stone, this is a great book:


  1. Quite awesome--an act of faith to put stones together in this fashion. Thank you for putting me on to this artist!

  2. Wow! I have been a fan of earth and stone art for years, but this is the first time I have seen Thea Alvin's work! Thanks for giving me another artist to add to my list of favorites!

  3. Wow lovely stuff, thought it was andy goldsworthy at first glance.
