Jerry & Marshall Locke

Jerry & Marshall are sculptors because they love stone. They are fascinated by what hides inside the stone and the process of discovery. They work in wonder of the colors and lines and textures that hide beneath the surface and are mystified by the geological processes and the length of time required to create them. Presenting their work in the form of landscape is the most natural way for them to ask you to look deeper into the world around you. Look beneath the surface for the beauty around you and understand that it might take some effort to find it. Landscape allows them to present it, and place it in a world where each stone benefits from the diversity around it. Each is made more beautiful because of the others around it. They see themselves as tour guides just as much as artists. They take great joy in sharing the special places they have found in stone and in watching you discover a world that is just under the surface.
