Art Description

Sculpture: Stone and Utah Calcite on Stone.

"The sweeps and turns in this Utah Calcite sculpture seem to arrive to a single point in space, similar to a passage or gateway allowing access to an ethereal location. The curvature and veins of the finished piece reminded me of the waves and crests found in the wake of ships, prompting the title of INTROITUS: entrance to canal."

-T Barny

Honeycomb Calcite (Utah Calcite) is a beautiful and impressive form of calcite mined exclusively in the state of Utah. Honeycomb Calcite, much like onyx and marble (in general characteristics) can provide a colorful replacement or dramatic accent stone for architectural and artistic applications. The name "Honeycomb Calcite" comes from the remarkable honeycomb appearance when viewing a polished surface. The "honeycomb look" is formed by the growth of long fibrous or tubular cells and crystals of honey-yellow calcite outlined by white membranes surrounding each cell. These cells grow in needle-like bundles. This "bundling" adds strength and stability to the stone enabling larger pieces to be mined and processed.

One of the 200+ individual types of stone I have carved, this sculpture is another in my ever-expanding library of sculpture that bridges the gaps between mathematics and art, and between the visual and tactile senses.
