2016. Glass. Installed in Gufunes beach.
The stone is of the earth just as we are. It is born in the mountain. As it breaks free from the mountain it becomes a unit of it’s own. As time goes on that unit becomes one with the earth again in the form of sand. Then the sand is taken and made into a whole oncemore by human invervention, in the form of glass.
In this work I wanted to work with this process. The glass is forced into it’s original form; the stone. I took a stone from a black beach in Iceland called Gufunes and placed on it sand and glass and put it in a kiln. The glass formed into sort of a shell shape of the rock and peeled of like skin. I then put the glass back where I had found the stone.
