Metal Magic

Skin

Description

The poetry of natural stone, expressed through the metaphor of hand-crafted metal.

 

Where craftsmanship is concerned, beauty begins beneath the skin.

As the name of the collection suggests, these surfaces feature thin layers of metal overlaid on previously shaped sections of stone.

The desired forms – from fossils to ferns to water lilies – are first hand-crafted in each slab of limestone or quartzite. Next, a wooden hammer known as a mogri is used to carefully beat the sheet metal – brass, copper, aluminium or white metal – until it perfectly assumes the shape of the stone surface. Then as a final touch, randomly selected areas of the metal are antiqued very slightly to create an attractive “reclaimed” look.
