The Rock Artist - Custom Stone Sculpture by Iain McDonald
Iain's rock sculptures differ in size, type of stone and subject matter. From a small table centerpiece quartz bowl to a 10 ft high coral Easter Island statue, his work elicits a profound reaction. His creations are frequently used as landscaping center pieces, for fountains and also as "conversation pieces" for business and home interiors.
To create his pieces Iain first has to find the stones, rock or glass. He finds them in many different locations - some he has mined himself ; others he has found in forests or steams; and others in local landscaping yards. Once he "sees" the creation in the rock- the "diamond in the rough" as it were - he uses electric grinders and other tools to shape the rock into it's final manifestation. Then begins the backbreaking work of polishing the piece to enhance the natural colors of the stone.
Ian's pieces have been displayed around the country in Florida, North Carolina, Maryland and New Mexico. He gets his inspiration from travels, his love of nature and his interest in ancient cultures.
Iain loves what he does and it shows in his work.
For commissioned sculptures, Iain works closely with the client to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece perfect for their intended setting.
