Methods & Materials “Vast busy gravel pits abound [near my home], exposing heaps of yellow aggregate once and still everywhere near, sleeping beneath the green fields. Great heaps, clean and golden, are always waiting there in the sun. And I never pass … without an emotion, a vision of the long dust-whitened stretches of the cement mills grinding to impalpable fineness the magic powder that would „set‟ my vision all to shape; I wish both mill and gravel endlessly subject to my will … Materials!
