Door County Love Rock
Rocks from the shores of Lake Michigan inspire Door County artist Ade W. to decorate them with intricate designs using paint, inks and tiny bushes. Pink flowers circle a mandala design while leaving the natural color of the rock showing through in the center flower. The integrating pattern of flowers and dots frame the larger main flower in the middle making it the focus of the design. This is a small rock has been painted with exquisite care and attention. Hold it in your hand and experience the soft contours of the rock made by millions of years of pounding in Lake Michigan’s waters. It is as eternal as true love. The Love rock measures 2″ in diameter. It is one-of-a-kind.

.Door County is famous for its pristine Lake Michigan shoreline. In many coves you can find beautiful rocks that have been colliding with other rocks for ions, making them round and smooth. When they are pushed onto the beach by powerful waves, they rest and capture the warmth of the sun. Holding one of these rocks in your hands is like holding thousands of years of history. Our artist, Ade, is a musician, teacher and traveler who hand paints each rock with precision. No two rocks are ever alike. He uses inks and paints to create intricate three dimensional mandala patterns as well as patterns that just seem to dance off the rock. He then coats each rock with a protective glaze. Place a rock or two in a bowl with your other collections, use one as a paper weight or just set one nearby where you can see it every day and admire its beauty.
