Stone writing

The gestures within the stones, formed millennia ago now joined together to form new ‘writing’ from old.

 

Sandstone clay two tone stones from the Gavenny river. Clay formed in the Devonian period as part of the “old red sandstone” when Britain was on the edge of giant desert. Formed in a shallow “playa” (an area of flat, dried-up land, especially a desert basin from which water evaporates quickly) lake formed when a flash flood washed down onto the desert plain.
