Irene Sirko

A unique element of Canadian soapstone is the infusion of light green streaks within a dark green stone. They appear throughout this sculpture and add a sparkle to the stone. Initially, a natural break on the inside curve of the sculpture appeared as a beautiful, rugged ridge and was to be incorporated. It however did not work no matter what approach was taken. After some time, the rugged edge was eliminated and the flow of the work emerged.
