About Us About the Art

ARTIST STATEMENT

STONE MOUNTAIN ARTS (formerly Still Point Arts) was established in 1996 as a collaborative, full partnership fine arts and crafts business.

Our unique one of a kind stone sculpture collection,
titled The Original Rock Singers, Celebrating the Music in Nature, is inspired by a full story of the creativity of the earth - from the give-and-take relationship between the flora and fauna, rivers and hills, and the sky and soil that we depend on and are part of, to the emergence of the first elements in the universe, and the earth churning with magma, and out of this churning, to the emergence of rocks and eventually the birth of life and the first living cells.

For the past 20 years our work has grown and evolved, from our studios in the California Bay Area, and along the Big Sur Coast, and today in the American southwest, and currently, more than 1,500 distinctive fine crafted Singers are in private collections around the world.

Our signature work features: natural stone, representing the body of the earth; luminous figures, representing a 'spirit of music'; and seamless integration, representing the deep interrelatedness at the heart of Creation. Each unique piece celebrates the potential and creativity that has been animating life from the beginning of time.

Thanks for visiting our site! While you are here we invite you to step away from the hurried pace and see things freshly, and we hope you will find, in one way or another, something that's truly worth having.
