Artist Revives Ancient Stone Balancing To Create Mind-Boggling Structures
Sculptor Michael Grab uses patience, balance, and gravity to visually stunning ends.
The art of stone balancing, as Michael Grab very well knows, is more than just stacking stones into extraordinary forms and structures. It’s about using nature for inspiration, but also for raw materials. For Grab, it’s a practiced therapeutic and meditative ritual. For everyone else, viewing the structures may be more dumbfounding than mind-clearing.
Make no mistake about it: no tricks are employed in creating these breathtaking sculptures. The only ‘glue’ holding these stone configurations together is the very gravity they seem to defy.
