Pod of Sun Seeds – by Don Lawler
2008 / Indiana Limestone
Location: John Leslie Vette House [308 N. Forest Ave.]
A monolithic piece of Indiana limestone was sawn vertically to reveal the interior of the sculpture. The inlayed spheres of Brazilian marble have been bushed or stippled to allow the individual crystals to sparkle in sunlight. Each ‘sun seed’ has a radial pattern carved with a pneumatic chisel. The sculpture has a wide variety of textures to be discovered.
