Touching Up The Earthship

“Wow, THAT’s creative!”

Blue Rock Station just outside of Philo, Ohio has 16 artsy buildings made mostly of reused materials, earthen plaster and rammed-earth tire foundations.

This is a working farm with barns made of straw-bales, reclaimed weathered barn wood and art on the walls.

The art pictured here appears on the walls of two of their tiny sleeping cabins. Interns and students help to design and create the art.

The photos demonstrate how two of the art pieces come together to make interesting artistic buildings.  Each building has a name.

The farm is open occasionally during warmer months and registration is required to take a tour.
