All of the sculptures Tom von Kaenel makes are unique and handcrafted. The stones come from the surrounding marble quarries of the island. The Naxian marble is of white, grey, or yellow-brown colour, and its structure is crystalline. No measuring instruments other than compasses and scales are used in the production of an object – the eye decides on the final shape. This small deviation in symmetry gives the form its individual tension.
The sculptures are kept raw, with surfaces deliberately not polished so that the traces of the craft are visible. The crystalline surfaces shimmer, giving the object a unique liveliness.
100% natural stone not sealed, not protected against acid. Beautiful imperfect!
