Amazing Dry Stone Garden Spheres by Devin Devine

Believe it or not, these incredible stone garden spheres were created without any glue or concrete. In fact, the spheres were made of carefully stacked stones and the entire structure is supported and stabilized by its own weight.

The dry stone garden spheres are made by artist and stone mason Devin Devine who is based in Effort, Pennsylvania (and is available for private commissions across the country).

On his website, Devine says the greatest risk of collapse is at the halfway point and that the biggest challenge is getting the ‘flow’ of the stacked stones just right. For spheres, Devine says that stacking the stones is not whimsical or spontaneous but more thoughtful and calculated.

In addition to dry stone sculptures, Devine also does flagstone patios and walkways as well as natural stone benches and dry stone walls and steps. You can learn more at DevineEscapes.com
