I found a round, flat container at St. T's thrift store about two weeks ago and thought it might make a good container to hold a balanced rock sculpture. I got some sand from a local park, sifted it, and put it into the container.
Then this afternoon I spent an hour trying some different rock balance variations. Below are two. The second is more simple, perhaps more zen-like, and is the current set-up in the living room. I hope that over time I will get better at photographing my sculptures!
