Hand build sculpture with intrinsically carved surface. “Sculpting urchins for me is a meditation. I never plan ahead on the exact shape but let the ball of clay unravel yourself and show me the shape it wants to be. By pushing from inside out twisting and moving it in my hands I let it grow how any organism in nature will grow by itself.”- Lana Kova. After the shape is finished the carving takes place. It takes many hours to carve deeply the surface so that it is “breathing, alive”.
