The Art of Charles Pilkey
Stone is a harsh mistress;
It will humble the proudest carver.
A cold, elemental beauty; such stuff as worlds
are made of. The stuff of the earth. The entire drama of human life in all its heroic folly is played out on a stage
of stone. And when the final curtain falls, when lights are dimmed and actor and audience depart,
all that remains is stone.
Like the earth, stone abides.

The artist is the lover of nature. He is therefore her master and her slave.
