Part of the "E" series by Neil Mark, this piece is compelling in its marriage of wood and rock, and named for the beautiful pairing. The rock is cradled by Manitoba maple roots and the entire piece is mounted on a steel rod on a walnut base.

The Artist: Neil Mark, an artist, and a farmer, is the sixth generation on his family farm, north of Lake Scugog. Neil uses his deep love of trees and nature to sculpt mesmerizing sculptures. Working with the natural appeal of the wood itself, Neil uncovers the beauty in every piece, transforming it from an unassuming piece, discovered in the forest or in the field, to a work of art. When Neil is not creating his own pieces, he is working on pieces of walnut, spalted maple and Manitoba maple that become either “canvases” for Hannah Mark’s (daughter) animal paintings, or a base for the steel creations of Cathy Mark (wife). You never know what wonderful new collaboration you will find at the Mark family farm and studio.
