The Art of Stone Balancing

Written by

 

Artist and photographer Michael Grab (featured previously) first ventured into stone balancing in the summer of 2008 while exploring the beautiful landscape of Boulder Creek, Colorado. Ever since, it has become a source of meditative practice and creative passion and Grab has become quite prolific in the art form.

As Grab explains on his website Gravity Glue:

Balance requires a minimum of three contact points. Luckily, every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a natural tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the vibrations of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest “clicks” as the notches of the rocks are moving over one another.

 

Be sure to check out the video embedded directly below to see the amazing creations Grab has built in the last year alone. I’ve also included a number of photos (which Grab takes himself) that showcase his work from last year. To see much more, check him out at the links below.
