In continuation of the ever lengthening Replicating the Roswell Rock, I’ve got a few rocks on the studio table that I’m working on. Found a new handful of quality stones to work with. Here are some of them catching the evening light. I’m particularly excited about the one in the upper right corner which has the smoothest, most chocolaty look I’ve come across so far. Funny thing about that one though, is that it didn’t come from the creek. Micky spotted it while raking yesterday, just laying in the yard. This may turn out to be the best one yet. To find it in my own backyard, no more than 12 ft. from my shop door is
Breaking News! For those of you that have been following Replicating the Roswell Rock, we may have a possible end to the Roswell Rock mystery… it appears a man came forward yesterday (8/27/14) with a pretty solid explanation on the probable origin, and possibly who made it. Apparently this is about two stones that were purchased in 1998, in Roswell, at the “Alien Encounter 98″ festival.

An additional image has now gone up at Crop Circles Research Foundation, also coming from John Russell which appears to bear a carved-in version of what we see on the original Roswell Rock. In my opinion they seem to share the same what I would call design flaws and differences from the original field version.

Crop circle season has begun, which means I’ll be doing some stone carvings again to be sure. One evening recently I had time to make this latest piece – my favorite so far. You can read more on this subject here“.
You may have noticed our store has nothing in it yet, but this is going to change soon. Undoubtedly some of the first items will be various stone products that are almost ready. Our goal is to be heavily stocked with unique gifts by next holiday shopping season.
More info and updates coming soon.
It’s true, our cat “Friday” WAS old, but it didn’t really seem like it – just last year I looked out the window and was shocked to see him fearlessly beating on a big raccoon that was eating out of his bowl. Probably embarrassing for Friday that the raccoon didn’t seem to notice much and just continued eating.
Micky has a nice Friday post on her blog. Good photo too. Here is a link.
