Genesis / The Maiden Collection / Colorado Yule Marble
22.5 x 5 x 14.25″ / SN120405 / 46 lbs / $1,500
Genesis was actually the very first piece of The Maiden Collection to be carved. Taking a sliver of a piece of the rough block that I was to carve into the collection’s 41 sculptures I had no preconceived ideas as just what I would find. And so imagine my delight on discovering the maze of intricate swirling patterns laying deep within the ten tone slab of Colorado Yule Marble. Of course little did I know, or care, at the time of the challenges and difficulties associated with carving such a complex mixture of granite and marble. But I love this piece for what it is – a small slice of pure geological time, as well as the first carving of the rest of my life. Little did I know it, but immediately upon Genesis’s completion, Curvilinear Marble Sculpture was born.
