Vase

Eruption

by Patrick Nadeau



« Obsidian is beautiful in slab form, as a fragment of vitrified lava, black, opaque and reflective. Once machined, to a fine thinness, it becomes transparent, precious, luminous, crossed with mysterious striping and emitting a kind of strangeness. Are we looking at stone or glass? "Eruption" is an assembly of coarse rock, polished rock and colored crystal. The crystal emerges from the obsidian and the two materials meld into a faded color. This is a vase. It relates the vegetable to the mineral, evoking pioneer plants that colonize the lava fields.»
