Sikhote-Alin meteorite microcosm

This hand-carved environment encapsulates the components that each work is inspired by, and formed from. Each composition is constructed upon a foundation of hand-carved limestone, a sedimentary rock in which most prehistoric fossils are preserved. Functioning as a microcosm, these compositions set each work in dialogue with a distant past, represented by a natural fossil, rare mineral or extra-terrestrial metal specimen.
