"I was out in my driveway with some old pieces of stone when I heard a voice telling me to pick up my tools and start to work on a tombstone. I looked up in the sky and right there in the noon daylight, He hung a tombstone out for me to make."
This is how the late William Edmondson explained his beginning to make stone carvings.
Later Mr. Edmondson got another message to begin carving figures. These are remarkably beautiful.
Here is Untitled (Three Doves). It's one of my favorites.
