Onyx and granite. 1988. 5″ high with base. Private collection.
Swan was commissioned as a mutual gift for a wedding anniversary. I love its capacity to conduct light, and to glow where it is thin enough. When the sculpture lived in Florida, it rested near a wall. A short opaque pipe containing a strong light came out of the wall and fit closely to the back of the sculpture. It was the only light in the room when they first showed it to me, and it was magnificent!
