Art From the Earth

THE COLLECTION

Welcome to Earthway Art

The inspiration for my artwork comes from a fascination with the ancient stone works throughout the world, earth energies, a respect and interest with indigenous medicine wheels, and the spiritual significance surrounding them. The medicine wheels, often being situated on beautiful rolling grasslands overlooking grand vistas added to their allure for me. Back-dropped by the stars, showing alignments and calibration with them, I find simply amazing. Perhaps a better term for them would be prairie temples, they share similarities with other ancient stone ruins from around the world, such as being circular, symbolizing unity, and astronomical alignments as seen with Stonehenge. Re-creating them in artwork, both in existing and fictional variety has been something I've wanted to do for some time. The crop circle designs were a natural extension from the medicine wheel format, given my interest in them as well. Most crop circle designs are quite complex, but I continue to come up with new methods of re-creating them.
Please re-visit the site as I continually do new designs in this type of format, and I am always coming up with other types of artwork as well, which I endeavor to keep original and accurate.

    Construction
Tiny stones and various vegetation placed individually into a pulp and plaster substrate topped with either latex and white paint for a snowdrift effect, sand or hobby turf. After curing, the artwork is glued to a backboard and mounted in aged and distressed rough-cut cedar frames, behind glass with frosted borders. The tiny stones used, are in either black, natural, and rainbow rock. The OM symbol and Pythagorean symbol for well-being are done with the same stones as well as larger white stones with brown or black sand. The African ruins, Peruvian citadel, and Stonehenge are made from cement. All medicine wheel designs come with a description, along with a brief history of the medicine wheel. All crop circle designs come with a description applied to the back. Artwork comes with a mounting hanger and felt wall protectors (already attached). For artwork 33 inches x 13 3/4 inches, a small wall anchor is recommended.
