Sculpted Limestone

Mike Gorman's avatar Mike Gorman

I was born in Detroit, and love this City, its people, and the beautiful architectural structures that adorn the landscape. Detroit has come full circle from its brilliant years of architectural grandeur, to ruins, to experiencing a renaissance throughout. My visits to Ireland have enhanced my passion towards rock, limestone in particular. However the artist or architect shapes the limestone, it is timeless in appearance and permanent in its setting. Historic castles in Ireland stand as a testament to the rock's permanence and beauty. A single piece of limestone has a past, present, and future.. My limestone pieces are salvaged pieces of Detroit limestone, rescued from the crusher, which once enriched some of Detroit’s distinguished limestone buildings, schools and homes. My recovered limestone pieces have brought the past into the present and its new form will be its link to the future.
