‘…merely from exposure to moisture in the air…’
‘…forming a crack in the core of a solid craggy mass…’
' dry stitches between the linear segments...'

‘…a rocky cradle, a cherished white stone…’

in the studio: ice

What begins as a humble disc of ice precariously balanced
within the branches of an apple tree,
translates into this unexpected sculptural detail
representing ice, honey or amber.
