Stone is a hard material found in the ground which is used for artistic purposes such as carving statues, creating jewelry, and assembling mosaics. Rock hunters and artists often collect interesting stones and rocks to cut, polish and use in their art work.
Found objects, objet trouvé in French, are items which an artist finds and incorporates within a work of art. Collectors have been displaying aesthetic objects in collections for centuries. But modern art uses objects with non-art functions, such as recycled or repurposed materials.
Assemblage is the French word for the artistic process of putting together three dimensional objects to create a work of art. Artists often use found objects, such as leaves or stones from nature, discarded items or recycled materials, to assemble in a creative, interesting way.
