Chimes

Some ten or twelve sets of wind chimes lay in a pile. Hanging them is one of my last tasks related to my move into the new studio. And today I’m happy to be back, working away in a wonderful new space. Everything has found its proper place, including the many, many fossils and rocks that I couldn’t bear to leave behind.

Brachiopods, Cora, Lichen

It’s been refreshing to re-view the fossils I have accumulated over time. And, in their new location, I thought they deserved some attention.

Cephalopods

Cephalopod, Brachiopods

Trace Fossil, Crinoids, Lichen

Coral

Gilboa Tree Stump (base)

_______________

Generally speaking, our home (and studio), while only six miles away from my previous studio, sit in a fossil bare area.¬†Yet these two rocks (that sit on an 18’x24″ surface) were found by Cindy and me in the woods out back. Full of fossils, I believe they are known as “erratics,” delivered from further north by the last receding glacier.

And below are images of fossils found on or in this pair.

Hopefully, I’m back on schedule now.

Thanks for the visit.
