Frank's passion for a challenge is what started him on his journey to hobby sculpting. One day he was admiring a beautifully carved rock Bear by a Sculptor in the Columbia Valley in BC. Jerry introduced Frank into the world of hard rock sculpting with Calcium Sulphate Anhydrite which is a fairly hard rock 3.5 mohs or degree of hardness of the rock compared to 1 mohs for Soapstone. In order to sculpt this rock, diamond powered tools were necessary to work with it. At the time Frank purchased the tools that were required to get by, and has since then, upgraded to better and sometimes the best tools in the business in order to test himself to the next level.
His experience with Anhydrite led him by chance to discover a "New Art Form" no one has ever seen which he appropriately named " Sand n Sketch "
In 2017 an opportunity was presented to him to Import some Honeycomb Calcite from Shamrock Mines in Utah. Today Frank is the Broker of this rock in Canada. This rock is a semi-precious stone that has many capabilities and is capable of bringing inner peace when around it. "Honeycomb Calcite Canada"
