This plaque is Utah Picture sandstone.
Its supost to look like rolling hills.
When designing this piece I tried to match the wood grain (top & bottom)with the picture in the stone , in other words It looks like a road at the bottom of the stone I wanted the wood grain to flow into the road and if you look at the sky I tried to match the grain with the sky .

stone is 10”x10” over all plaque size is 14”x14”
woods used are Walnut & Birch

Very nice. Great job on matching the grain to the stone. Lines up nicely.

Overall great design. Love the corner walnut pieces. Makes the entire piece a picture and not just a framed stone.

Keep up the fantastic work.

Great looking piece Ron, a great combination with the wood. Where did you get such a nice big piece of stone that looks this good? I hope to work in stone someday too.

You could have fooled me, it looks so much like spalted wood.

You can’t compete with mother natures beauty.

I like to respect and follow the texture of wood!
This is the basis of each work with wood!
Excellent!

Beautiful piece. At a glance I too thought it was a figured wood. Great job.
