The undulating gentle curves of this sculpture by artist Jana Osterman emulate organic egg shaped forms found in nature. Created out of gypsum, polymer and bronze, the finish is patinated with acid which gives the piece a beautiful deep blue weathered finish. Layers of wax protect this sculpture so it can be handled easily. This is one in a series of nine.
“The idea behind this was to create an intimate piece someone would pick up and touch, such as meditation beads or a touchstone.” Jana Osterman
