A Matter of Degree

Irene Sirko

This beautiful black sculpture is made of serpentine, a relatively hard stone. You can see where the natural break has been maintained. The issue of degree can be seen when comparing the texture and colour of the natural break, first, to the top segment that has been sanded only, second, to the next segment that has been sanded slightly more and then oiled, third, to the bottom segment that has been sanded, oiled and polished to the highest level. Thus, this sculpture is ‘A Matter of Degree’.
