Lawrence shares his relationship with each crystal:
“We begin a relationship, the crystal and I, committing to the work of finding it’s highest expression. Before we begin working, I connect by touching and exploring, examining the history of it’s worn and broken surfaces peeking inside where it’s beauty lies still. I admire it. The inspiration is combustible.

We agree about the work to be done, and I envision a blueprint of it’s potential form. I won’t make a cut until I feel a “yes” fill my body, clearing me to proceed. To change the state a stone that has been in for millions of years can be daunting, yet also serious fun. It is my task to elicit beauty from matter. The crystal trusts me. Beauty is the primal force, emanating from, and amplified by, the crystal. I focus on activating the flow and force of beauty.”
