Relearning The Ancient Mastery Of
Those Natural Resources Around Us.
Today we have forgotten much that was
known. Yet, around the world, curious
minds and active hands are once again
learning to practice many of the ancient
skills, such as flint knapping.
Somewhere, every day, the sounds of
stone against stone, bone against stone,
even soft metal against stone, ring out
across the land.
For those who are again learning to use
these ancestral skills, the satisfaction
gained from a successful, intentional
stone fracture, from a blow well struck, is
both rewarding and captivating. If we can
do it once, surely we can repeat the effort,
with equal success. That is indeed the
challenge. And the joy.
And, just like the ancients, we find
ourselves seeking out unusual and
beautiful stone with which to work. The
human spirit still takes pride and glory
from both the wonder of the stone and
the skill of the work. The combination of
growing, skilled craftsmanship and the
natural beauty of the material reveals
both the soul of the stone and the heart
of the stone breaker.
