Seek & ye shall find

Mother nature shapes the stone, then it’s up to me, Rock Artist Steve to give them their voice. Some just want to be gummy bears, some like being funny, some like being profound, and others like being sentimental.

Rock the Cazbah

Like an engraving in stone, some might perceive it as stationary or inactive, but to me, it’s continued existence against the elements and enduring the march of time is not a passive thing, nor is any art form. Most especially the art of living a good life. May your art survive the test of time, in strength and goodwill, share it with others, and know YOU are an important part of it all.

The beauty of deeply engraved natural stones is treasured for lifetimes.

Each life affects another's

We may not always realize everything we do affects not only our lives but touches others, too, for a little bit of thoughtfulness that someone shows you care creates a ray of sunshine for both of you to share. Yes, every time you offer someone a helping hand, every time you show a friend you care and understand, every time you have a kind and gentle word to give you help someone find beauty in this precious life we live, for happiness brings happiness, and loving ways bring love, and giving is the treasure that contentment is made of.

Count all the moods you've known, know they're not stuck in stone.

— The High Strung

Perfectly imperfect

I’ve always enjoyed being creative and I’ve always liked rocks! A couple of years ago I was looking for an opportunity to create an extra stream of income for myself and I was inspired by a vendor I came across selling engraved natural stone at a craft fair in Michigan. I thought it was so neat, I bought one and asked him how he did it. Sandblasting he told me, so I looked into it and realized it was something I could do without a huge investment.

I’ve recently created my own Shopify shop where I’ve been taking custom orders & an online portfolio showcasing the beauty of deeply engraved natural stone, glass & earthenware. I love how this allows me to get creative & send positive ripples into the world with everlasting sayings that empower, encourage, and enlighten.
