Płatek śniegu

white alabaster, steel height

approx. 65 cm

A unique sculpture of snow-white alabaster mounted on four shafts in a metal base. The rectangular form of the work bears natural traces of the tools used in the quarry when forging the blocks of alabaster from the wall monolith. The artist has exposed the original life of the stone, giving it a very simple abstract form. ‘This is the base that became a sculpture’ – says the artist. ‘I was making an alabaster base for another sculpture. One morning I entered the studio to continue my work and saw that what was supposed to be the base had gained strength and had somehow become a sculpture in its own right. I had no choice but to add a steel base to it.’
