Project Information

Okay, I know it's not wood, but those that know me, know I've posted my stone work before since I work in a lot of stone. The base is Golden Ambrosia granite, ( I think I remember the name right, there's so many kinds) I chose it because it looks so much like the ocean sand. I carved the edges to resemble the sand on the beach and how waves will form ripples into it, something I do a lot of. The rays are Volga Blue granite from Russia, and you can see the incredible blue that shines in spots (depending on your angle and the light from where you stand) This is a mommy, daddy, and baby scene as they swim just above the bottom and I used coral underneath them to help hide the rods I mounted them on. About 40 hours in making this piece. This piece is for sale, first time I tried my hand at this kind of sculpting, I made 2 of these units at the same time, the other I'm about to also post, done as manta rays. These are a kindof ray of my own design.

Those are really beautiful! I've seen that Volga Blue granite in person. so I know what you mean about how the light plays with it.

Again I just love these. I really see the blue in these pictures, maybe because they come up bigger.
Awesome
