This is the first trio of one-off Alabaster sculptures made for Artists & Objects by Lotti V Closs. The works are made using traditional methods, sawn, chiseled and sanded by hand by the artist. One of the qualities of the stone is its translucency; against the light, this brings to life an interior of delicate veining and soft fluid clouding, unique to each piece.
These natural qualities are contrasted by the stone’s inherent weight and solidity, with each piece chosen and sculpted in answer to this material contradiction. Sharp angles combine with curving intrusions and protrusions, hard and softened edges, referencing both the manufactured and the organic in miniature monolithic form.
Materials: Italian and Spanish Alabaster
