Adam, The Maiden Collection, Colorado Yule Marble Sculpture by Martin Cooney

~~~

To my knowledge Adam was the very first curvilinear hand carved marble bowl ever to be carved, for I had at this point never witnessed it’s like, and prior to this breakthrough moment I didn’t know if it was even possible for marble to be carved this thinly.  Hence the name – a whimsical reference it’s creation as the very first bowl of it’s kind. Very recent and dramatic improvements to diamond blade, and more importantly semi-flexible abrasive disc technology had finally combined to sculpt marble in ways quite unimaginable to previous generations.  Throughout the sculpting process I feared that it may well break simply break into pieces.  But when I had finished, the dust had settled, and I took a good look at it, the possibilities regarding just where, in sculptural terms this revolutionary bowl may lead, began to unfold.  And in a way I suppose, by logical conclusion, so it was that the  The Maiden Collection’s stylistic direction was now quite dramatically resolved.    Adam to this day (September 14, 2016) remains one of my thinnest and most inventively stratified hand carved marble bowls.  Needless to say, as founder member of the Curvilinear Marble Bowl Club  he adores a sunny window, but will greedily make himself quite at home under any strong, direct, light.    Shortly following Adam’s completion the second Curvilinear hand carved marble bowl,  Eve, popped into the world.   Nothing whatsoever to do by the way with the famously ancient book, in case you were thinking. No, call me old fashioned but I just love bestowing deep, bold, gravitas-laden names: JonahGenesis... Titanic, upon my newly created sculpture, as will become apparent at some point Along the Way.
