Ediacara Suite: Charnio Vessel

Sculpture & Objects

Embroidered lace, 25x18x18cm

It is extraordinarily rare for anything as soft and delicate as a 540-million-year-old sea-frond to have its impression preserved, never mind discovered! I had the notion of an apparently fragile, transparent lacy vessel to express my wonder of these lovely forms, as they cast elusive evocative shadows about their sieve-like base.
