  1. I am one of those stone “collectors” handfuls of stones on plates in the studio, in my coat pockets, I had so many at one time that I’ve started depositing them on the larger rocks around my pond. Now my kids, their friends and my nieces and nephews rediscover them. But I never did anything as wonderful as Sam Shaw has done- with stones. Sam, Take a bow!
