Diary of a Rock Balancer :: 

Stone Balance Art created and photographed by Michael Grab — 04 April 2016 — Colorado, USA ::

I know this one doesn’t look like it should stay.. buuuut alas, it is pure and simple (maybe complicated) balance. Things start acting funky (kinda like an orb) when so much weight builds up top of a relatively tiny rock (let alone tiny combination). The lower curl took the most time to properly align, before going big, because those smaller finer edges (vibrations) tend to disappear under mounting pressure. Extremely steady hands/body/breath required.

  1. Incredible, Michael. Bowing down in respectful reverence. Way to show us what can be achieved, and providing technical guidance at the same time. You have a special talent, and you share willingly, and helpfully. Very much appreciated, my friend.

  2. Takes you 3 hours to make this yet the stones look covered in syrupy water from top to bottom in the pic…I smell fakery here, the stones would be dry that far in time. Nice clear glue, not gravity

  3. I swear u r so talented, oh and steady too. If I could do this, I’d probably be alright. The time it would take me to do this I couldn’t handle, at least not right now. I’m working on it though. Your work is beautiful, I’m glad I made it come up first on my FB account. Thank you so much.

    1. Bob Thomson Please, tell me you are kidding? At what point did the next generation become so wrapped in cotton wool? When did people stop taking responsibility for their own actions, and start blaming everyone else? I am rarely tempted to reply to comments, but i really never read anything so depressing as that comment :(

  4. This one kind of represents my life as I live and see it. Lol.. All kinds of crazy, yet I’m still here. Love this piece. Admire your patience and creative art.
