Rock Sculpture

Stone cairns, no mortar, no glue.
By Thea Alvin, myearthwork.com

A cairn is a man-made pile (or stack) of stones. The word comes from the Scottish Gaelic: càrn (plural càirn) yet cairns can be found all over the world. Cairns are often erected as landmarks, a use they have had since ancient times. Since prehistory, they have also been built as sepulchral monuments, or used for defensive, hunting, ceremonial, astronomical and other purposes.

You know I gave up carving stone because of carpel tunnel syndrome. But I just didn't think of just gluing rocks together. Now I have a great collection of rocks as I love them dearly so now I am inspired to make a sculpture in a new way. Thank you for the inspiration!

Artist unknown, via: contractortalk.com

Hello,
My name is Thea Alvin and I built the cairns on your website which are titled as unknown artist. you can see other, perhaps more mature balance works of mine on my website at www.myearthwork.com if you click through to the flickr pages you'll see many variations of this particular cairn, as it was on a public corner and 10 times was rebuilt, because people kept tipping it over.
Thank you kindly for crediting me for time work.
All the best, thea
Marcia Bivens

I was happy to see Andy Goldsworthy represented here. And now I've fallen in love with Duncan Elliott's work, too!
