Beaver Canyon andesite is a slender, highly colored 45 million year old lava rock that takes the form of curious spires and columns. I chose this medium, not because it's the rarest columnar jointed stone on the planet, though it is, nor the most beautiful, though I also think it is. I chose to work with these columns because they draw me. They excite me and animate my creativity. It's as if they chose me to see and present their full potential as art quality natural stone water features.
