Triangles

Triangles range from large to small – rough to smooth – acute to unilateral and everything in between.  Triangles are the building blocks for sail boats, angels, trees, stars and some very interesting towers!

 

The way these rocks create the same shapes  – over and over again – never ceases to amaze me.

A Triangle is Born!

Howl

Rocketype –  its the word one viewer used to describe my work. He compared the shapes to archetypes because they are universally recognized.

Below are examples of some “Rocketypes”

Howlers, prowlers, bears, cows, sheep,  birds, cities and towns, triangles, hearts, squares, hands  The shapes are endlessly repeated – yet each rock is as unique as a snow flake.

2 Howlers.  Note how the bases mirror the  object.  Also note the base with the cratered surface. It is possible the craters are some kind of fossil – the rocks on the shores of Lake Champlain are full of fossils – and not all of them are obvious.
