KeyStone Balance is the artistic stone balance work of Pennsylvania native Tim Anderson. He performs his gravity-defying craft at events all over the world. His work began as a result of a climbing injury that sidelined him during the 2011 season. Spending time along the river, having an artistic background and being influenced by cairns he encountered during his winter travels in the mountains, Tim began his playful venture into stone balancing during the recovery process. Things quickly took off, and his artistic career was launched. He met Tim Wood, founder of Aquatic Edge, in 2014, and very little time passed before he started helping him with water feature design and construction. He now works full time at Aquatic Edge as a project coordinator. He is the resident "stone guru" and precariously balances stones as KeyStone Balance. For more information, please visit
