One of our most popular pebbles is the Black Mexican Beach Pebble. This pebble come from the beaches of Mexico, where collecting and sorting them has become quite a cottage industry for the local families.
A well known artist in the New York City art community hired us to produce some pebbles that he is using to create a rock and cable sculpture. We completed the project and shipped the pebbles this week. Our customer just e-mailed us:
"Just wanted to let you know that we got the stone order; haven't gone through it too carefully yet, but tentatively everything looks OK!
Thanks a lot!
Also, these rock cables are going to descend into a trough that would be filled with pebbles."
So there you have it...the transformation of a common beach pebble from Mexico into a proud sculpted stone creation prominently displayed in an art gallery in New York City. Talk about a rags to riches story. Pictures to follow!
