PIRATES AND SEA TURTLES AND MERMAIDS!
Never has such fun stuff been made out of a pile of rock
Cool Coastal Art
The crazy guy who cuts all these stones together without regard for his personal safety
Try as I might, I can’t paint. Not a flower. Not a bowl of fruit. Not a bathroom wall. But put a dirty, dusty grinder in my hand with a diamond wheel spinning at 20,000 rpms a few inches from my face, I might just get that playful image of that hard-charging pirate, bikini-thief beagle, or carefree skinny-dipper out of my head and see it come to life in stone.
With his one-of-kind stone-inlay art exhibited in shows and galleries across the country under the name "Grindstone Cowboy", it has been often said that Tim thinks like a rock - and his head to be filled with them. As a stoneworker, he can think of no finer compliment.
