His and Hers Monoliths
Things have taken a great turn! I'm so happy I could burst...
Yesterday morning, a 70 ton crane showed up at the studio from Padgett Crane Co. in New Albany.
A semi from Stone Belt Trucking showed up with a 40,000 lb. stone.

This is Meg's stone for her Anchorage, Alaska commission. At 9'H x 6'W x 4'-7"D, it is huge and excudes its own field of gravity.
Behind it is her unfinished earthworks / stone sculpture called "Conversation".
Also, while the crane was here, we stood up my 30,000 lb. 8'-6"H x 6'W x 3'-8"D stone. Last night, in the starlight while walking around these huge monoliths, it felt like I was in a Stanley Kubrick movie. (que theme from 2001...)
The "3 Graces" wait in the shadows.
