Unbelievable Stacks of Balanced Stones Seem to Defy Gravity

Artist Michael Grab of Gravity Glue is incredibly skilled at achieving beautiful harmony in the most surprising rock formations. His delicately assembled stacks, entitled Balancing Rocks, seem to defy gravity. However, he says that gravity is the only “glue” that holds his structures together.

The creative stone balancing process initially grew out of Grab’s simple curiosity and has since developed into what he describes as a therapeutic ritual. With extreme patience, a very steady hand, and a meditative mind, he works carefully to find small connections between the stones’ natural indentations. He says, “Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.”

Grab works in tune with the environment, using supplies collected from nature, and working within the surrounding landscape to produce his meditative sculptures. “The process resembles an intimate dance with the elements,” he explains, “Adapting to the moments, embracing creative intuition. Focused breathing.. silence… exploring and redefining ‘possible.'”
