My idea is to make a set of 60, and the collection vases will be 5/6. The collection is named fossils.The idea came from fossils I found in a desert. I was fascinated by their amorphous shape and by their size, smaller than 1,5 cm. I remained a whole day to watch them, sitting alone in the desert, the fossils and me. I went on observing them until sunset, when the inspiration came. Back home, I started to sculpture the marble. It took me a long time to give shape and soul to what I had had in my hands. The desert sand erodes, and it dawned on me the idea to create a crude texture, which consumes the smooth part, mirroring; just like the Unfinished by Michelangelo.
Each piece captures the duality of the fossil, which is that of life and death, while reflecting the essence of marble, a natural stone that cannot be altered but only shaped by human hands.
The contrast between the texture and the smooth sections is part of my research, it is just like unveil the potentialities of a single material.
