Rock 148 ~ Carrara Marble Rock ~ December 17 2015 ~ Claremont CA
Many years ago, a sculptor named John Fisher arrived in Claremont to create a marble sculpture on site in a local park. I watched him almost daily. I listened to the chink and song of the marble as he chipped at it. Children came in groups from local schools to learn about this process. It was fun. Today my friend Doug gave me a piece of that rock that Mr. Fisher brought here from Carrara Italy. It measures approximately 4 1/2". Below my rock photos for today is a video of the Carrara marble quarries.
