The Stone Rules

Sep 2011 | Posted by:

2011 | Directed by Dean Merrill

The Stone Rules was shot to capture the First Annual J.C. Stone Sculpture Symposium featuring Maine artist Don Meserve.

The film highlights the artists as they explain their creative process and the relationship of “the ideas they bring to the stone, and what the stone suggests.” The artists venture further into a discussion of the creative process, transcending into a philosophical approach to the dual relationship of artist and medium.

Narrated by Don Meserve, this film is tribute not only to artists, but to Don who passed away last year after a long struggle with Lung Cancer. His personality, knowledge, lively wit, and creativity left its mark on all who he encountered, especially those in the craft.
