What happens when you take a flat graphic pattern and sandblast it on to stone?
It's fascinating how that image in stone becomes delicate.
Instead of a flat graphic pattern you see subtle nuances of texture and light.

Remember this wild rose papercut?
Peter Andrusko, master of all things stone, translated it into both positive and negative images on a 12 x 12 inch Pennsylvania blue stone tile.
|This is the negative version with the image recessed.|
|This is the positive version with the image on the surface.|
Does one (positive) or the other (negative) read better for you?
