Marble: Art and Artisans — 4 Comments

  1. Great post! The mountains are so beautiful from afar but even more interesting when you drive into them! We brought home so much we had to pay extra baggage fees. I recommend anyone to use Heather! She is a great tourguide for all ages!

  2. Thanks so much, Melonie. You and your family are great guests. Your curiosity and enthusiasm are unbeatable! Can’t wait to see you in June.

  3. Wonderful heather! I love seeing marble used as a practical, everyday material as much as a work of art. There’s a quirky spirit and an energy in these ancient natural materials which I think you’ve captured here too.

  4. I wanted to say that by its nature stone is hard and cold, seemingly negative qualities, but they become positive when used to keep lardo cool or when subjected to the sculptor’s chisel. Since I couldn’t express this thought to my satisfaction, I omitted it, but what you say about spirit and energy encouraged me to try again. Thank you, Janine.
