All sorts of stones still needed.

We needed more than the 12 tons of stones we've already used for the large Fibonacci ramp we're making at the art school, so yesterday morning we made a field trip to the local quarry in Minden Ontario. 

After having worked two days building with this lovely stratified granite the students had a good Idea what to be looking for. 

At the quarry we loaded a lot of hearting in buckets. We also found more of the medium sized pieces we needed. We placed thinner flag size stones in the trailer as well as naturally tapered stones for bedding flat coping stones of our ramp on an angle, as well as tapered voussoir stones for around the arched niches we have incorporated into the design. 

Oh, and we needed some large Liquorice All Sorts too.
