|The same canyon lands of northwest
Texas where Chris harvests the juniper wood for his sculptures also contain
many square miles of alabaster deposits. The unusual water carved
texture, lends itself to Chris' signature style of movement as well as
leaving a portion of the sculpture in it's naturally weathered state.
The caves containing the alabaster were formed by water from violent
down pours during thunderstorms. The rain water carves ravines in the
soil of the canyons and then bores through the alabaster layer of multi
colored caverns eventually exiting in the Red River Valley.
Chris' son Brent often accompanies him on trips to explore the alabaster
caves and help collect the multi colored stone. However, he seems to
take more delight in collecting lizards and exploring the bats that hang
from the cave ceilings.
|The alabaster stone that Chris is currently working has hues of color in the salmon
to red range with occassional hints of a blueberry tone. He will be featuring several unique sculptures for sale on the
site as soon as they are finished. If you'd like to be notified when they
are ready or would just like more information about alabaster sculptures
please use the contact Chris page to give Chris
your e-mail address and ask him to contact you.
In the near future Chris will be expanding this site to include a mini
unique alabaster sculptures including the poems that he writes for each piece.
