Tower

Tower Tower
Tower is carved from something sold to me as "zebra marble". For a marble, it's rather hard. In fact, my chisels just bounced off it, so I learned a bit about diamond abrasives to create this sculpture. The figuring in this stone is astounding; the layers have sharp boundaries between the white and black. I have no idea what natural processes resulted in this pattern.

I was somewhat inspired by middle eastern minarets as I created this work, though I must admit to being constrained by the shape of the raw stone as well. Note that the spiral pattern isn't quite as simple as it looks. There are more faces at the top than there are at the bottom of you examine it closely.

Dimensions: 5 inches in diameter and 17 inches tall.

Sold.
