Santa Cruz CA USA – Eckerman Studios

Michael and Ea Eckerman are father and son artists who share a love of working with stone.  Although based in the USA, they have been regular visitors to Australia as witnessed by the numerous landmarks they have left with us.

Ea Eckerman grew up on O’ahu’s North Shore and spent much of his childhood outdoors. Michael Eckerman is a stonemason and artist whose creative nature has led him away from traditional design. Together, this father and son team creates some of the most beautiful and original works of art around today.

Art is the ability to see something different in the ordinary. It is the ability to see something that others do not see. Art is the ability to see the beauty in the ordinary. In the same way that nature is art.

Art is something that you are born with. It is something that you can learn but It is best if you are born with it. You can be taught art, and you can be taught to be an artist. But it is great if art runs in the blood.

The Eckerman is a family where you can say that ‘art really runs in the blood. It is a father and son tandem which is later turned into father, son, and daughter.

Stone Arts are a form of art that includes large stones. Two main groups of stone art are stone circles and stone sculptures. A stone circle is a circle of large stones that are evenly spaced. A stone sculpture is a large stone that is carved in the shape of something, such as an animal or human.

Stone art can be found in many places in the world. Many stone art pieces have stood the test of time, some even thousands of years. Stone art is popular with many people and will continue to be in the future.

Since stone is strong and durable the strength of the stone makes it last for a long period of time and you would need minimal maintenance for the stone art.

The stone does not decay easily. It is really an advantage to use stone in arts because it does not fade easily. The stone looks rich and attractive so it will be an elegant piece of art that can be added to your home.

This father and son tandem specializes in their works in stone arts and these arts are not just good but extraordinary. We’ve featured a selection of their work here in the hope that it will inspire you.  

From personal experience, I can say that there is something very deeply rewarding gained when you build something with stone.

Perhaps it’s simply the ability to build from something nature has provided but I think it’s a lot more than that.  Try it and you’ll know what I mean.

There are many other examples of Eckerman art on both their FB page and on their site.

They cover a wide range of stonework – animals, fences, walls, installations, and a whole lot more. You’ll find 31 examples here.

If you will be given a chance to be an artist, would you want to be a stone artist? Would you try to explore the possibilities of creating extraordinary artworks with what nature can provide? If so, you can make these pictures we compiled in a gallery for you as a stepping stone.
