This is I think one of my favorite ever projects. The Tree of Life has been “sand carved” rather than just sand blasted. sand carving is a challenging technique requiring skillful use of drawing and blasting. This involves sand carving the stone layer by layer to create a beautiful 3D engraved image.
The “Tree of Life” drawing was all my own work, I had to work out how each individual layer would be carved out and in which order.and I was just a tad proud of how it all worked out.
The saying carved in raised in relief lettering around the rim is an old traditional African proverb and should resonate with us all.
This stone has been mounted on the gable of the house and looks just stunning.
