Axis | Life’s impermanence

Axis glass sculpture 2018

AXIS. Optical glass sculpture. April 2018. Cast, polished and sandblasted. Size: 27 H x 27 W x 8.5 cm (10.6 H x 10.6 W x 3.3 in). Weight: 13 kg (28.6 lbs).

Like the Earth revolving around its axis, life is constant movement and change. Everything fluctuates and changes constantly, within us, around us. Nothing is permanent. Nothing lasts forever.

I created Axis driven by a desire to capture life’s impermanence and its constant movement. The frozen Axis inside the glass is an attempt to freeze time and create the illusion of movement within stillness. Axis represents permanent change, the only constant in life.
