CLEARANCE CAIRN

2018

stones removed from corn field, pecked hammer stone, crate

A pile of scratched stones in a field tells a story of plowing, but also of the glaciers that originally deposited the stones in fields of clay. These cairns dot the edges of farm fields, clearance cairns, moved by glaciers and removed by farmers. For the lucky farmer, a stone tool might pop up here and there.
