New Sculpture by San Antonio Stone Carver Cody Vance

Up from the oil slick spilled Texas coast comes Into the Bayou, a new sculpture by Texas artist Cody Vance. The title evokes a grizzly croc creeping up from the cloudy waters approaching some sort of unattended stroller, a lurking terror in a state known for a multitude of environmental disasters, but never fear art lover -- the opposite is true.

A gorgeous new twist of carved rock, Into the Bayou is a prime example of polished Andes Onyx; a stone highly prized for its intricate grain, webs of beauty and signature aesthetic. Sought after by artisans of all kinds, this stone is almost obsolete with major international mining deposits now going to large corporations dealing in home construction; very rarely does an individual have such access to natural beauty.

Vance has displayed his craft in such a way that we are amazed and at awe with the imperfections of the stone juxtaposed with his craftiness that pulls out the strength and weaknesses to justify hours of love and labor uncovering such hidden beauty
