A Walk in the Woods ~ Stone Scarf
As the name implies, this beautiful marble that we collect in Utah looks as if Picasso painted the stone! The image of this scarf appears to be in a woods on a snowy evening. 270 million years ago, western Utah was under water. The Coconino sandstone was being laid down on land, then the Toroweap limestone ( a mixture of blobs of limestone, dolomite, mud, clay, and sand ) accumulated in the water, and was topped off by the Kaibab limestone. Between 140 and 50 million years ago the oceanic plate was subducted underneath the continental North American Plate. It was a folding/thrusting and heat generating mountain-building event that affected western North America from Canada to Mexico. In all this heat and pressure, some of the fractured and mineral filled limestone was changed into marble. Picasso Marble is a material prized by carvers and lapidarists all over the world.
Using high magnification lens we capture images deep within the microscopic typography of the stone and can transport the viewer into a micro world, far beyond what the naked eye perceives. Then we transfer those images onto luxurious fabric for "Stone Scarves”! Chiffon, lightweight and translucent, is the material of choice for our scarves as it allows for the printed design to be visible on both sides. The ultra-sheer fabric is printed using ecologically-safe transfer sublimation inks that provide vibrant color and strong wash durability. The printing process consumes no water and uses non-toxic bio-degradable inks. (We recommend washing machine with phosphate free detergent on a warm or cool delicate setting. Tumble dry low or line-dry)
Select size either (approximately) 36"x52" or 52"x72 and we will ship your beautiful scarf to you!
