The Stone Egg next door:

Dry masons have started stacking the stone egg I designed for my next door neighbor. The Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy makes a lot of these, and that's where my neighbor got the idea, from one of Goldsworthy's photographs. This stone egg is different though, both in shape and in the meaning, and it's that difference appeals to me. The finished egg will be almost 10 ft tall.

That's going to be mythic!

The masons are doing a really nice job of curving it. I'm happy.
