With this being the last true Maiden Collection bowl to be carved I wanted it to exhibit a little of the technique I had developed over the course of producing the series.   Part Noah’s Ark, part Four Corners,   a little bit Magellan,   it even has a touch of Felucia (minus the sail) it has turned out to posses a beauty and style all of its own.   The yin-yang shape, and heftier, more substantial design,  give this piece real ‘gravity’,   hence the relatively whopping 32 lbs.    Chicane arrived deep into The Maiden Collection carving stage, with a mere three sculptures separating it from Work in Progress, the final piece to be carved.   By this stage in the process I had earned a  clear and reliable understanding of the slab’s intrinsic properties, gained from carving so many sculptures from the same slab of marble,   each piece serving to build upon the information gained from carving the blocks that preceded it,    and by this point I had already completed 36 sculptures,  so I was able to put this useful knowledge to good effect.    I knew I wanted to carve this block into a bowl.   The block however took a lot of convincing. But when the dust settled I took a step back, duly took notice of the mass of curves in front of me….   and voila! Chicane was born.     As with all Maiden Collection sculptures appearances can be deceptive.    Although those angled curved lean way out over its base it is in fact extremely sturdy with a very low center of gravity.    At 32 lbs it holds more than enough counterbalance to keep from tipping in even the most extreme circumstances making it the perfect bowl for indoors and out.
