Barre Granite Inspiration


I visited a local granite quarry in the Graniteville area outside of Barre a number of weeks ago right when the snow was finally melting.

I really appreciated the dark and light striations along with the ice sheets in the quarry image.  Fantastic patterning. The force it must have taken to separate the stone block from the mountain!

The closeup of a recently quarried large stone block received grazing sunlight to really expose all of the rough edge variations.  It's a visual feast of texture. Both images inspire on many dimensions.
