Geodes Inspired Art

I have always been fascinated with precious and semi precious stones and the huge variety of crystals that you can see around the world. This was the start of an inspiration, creating pieces of art that encompass crystals as well as the resin.

Geodes are effectively rocks with a hole in the center, normally formed in volcanic rock that contained air bubbles and the empty cavity is filled over the years with crystals spreading towards the center of the cavity. The crystals are formed through temperature changes and as any liquid cools or evaporates, crystals begin to grow.

I decide to create art that represented either a slice of rock or a Geode, incorporating the many beautiful crystals within the piece. Producing an organic, one of a kind, 3D piece of contemporary art that can be be more affordable than a real slice of a Geode and a lot lighter to enable it to hang on the wall.

Due to the array of colours in crystals and semi precious stones these pieces can be created to suit many different colour schemes.
