I find it extraordinary that, looking down into this stone, we can easily imagine the depths of the heavens above: stars, galaxies and cosmic dust swirl inside this gently curving mass. I love the romance that this conjures.

Material: Yass Black Marble

The small white areas of this marble are the forms of sea creatures which inhabited the ancient seas which covered Australia. Now long gone, they left their calcium carbonate-rich bodies to be sedimented, becoming limestone. This limestone was then transformed into marble by later volcanic metamorphosis. Through all this change you can still see these creatures.

You are most welcome to arrange a time with me to visit my Sydney studio, in a COVID safe way, so you can see the sculpture before you buy it.

The price quoted is for pick-up at the studio door and I can arrange prices for packing and transport if needed too.
