Tectonic Ridge

steel, flame-painted oxide
36in x 36in x 4in (92cm x 92cm x 10cm)
SOLD - Custom Options Available!

Inspired by the North-Atlantic Ridge deep sea mountain range, hard steel is transformed into fluid moving strips, just like their bedrock counterparts.

Each strip shifts into its neighbor, creating a seismic ripple at each collision with the whole mass colliding into its mirror image, erupting into a ridge that bursts out toward the viewer.

Each collision point is painted using only the flame of a torch, creating a multicolored ring of oxide marking each seismic event.
