Mountain Sculptures Studios, LLC is owned and operated by the Locke family, Terrie, Jerry, and Marshall. The Locke's are sculptors because who love stone, fascinated by what hides inside the stone and the process of discovery. "We work in wonder of the colors and lines and textures that hide beneath the surface and we’re mystified by the geological processes and the length of time required to create them." They chose the form of landscape to present their work as it "is the most natural way for us to ask you to look deeper," where every piece of stone is made more beautiful because of the others around it. The Locke family views themselves as much tour guides as artists. "We take great joy in sharing the special places we’ve found in stone and in watching you discover a world that is just under the surface."
The stone used in these mountain sculptures is from around the world, all of it purchased from importers, miners, stone merchants, or individuals. Whenever possible, the Locke's buy the stone already cut into slabs to reduce waste and create in a higher quality product. The slabs are then cut, cleaned, “sculpted," and finished into individual mountains. All of the colors are natural colors as they came out of the earth. Some clear sealers are used to provide shine and strength.
Each sculpture includes a moon cresting the top of the mountain, as well as spacing in between stones for air plants or other decoration.
