We formed the concept for a monolithic piece which would fracture into two component parts.

A single block of bronze, cracked in two, would reveal a polished golden core – its apparent imperfection transformed into its most beautiful asset.
Balancing sculpture with function, as it breaks one half falls away onto its side, forming a lower desk for less able-bodied workers and visitors.


The desk draws inspiration from the natural landscape at its largest and smallest scales – referencing elemental geological origins
and the smallest ephemeral marks that exist only for a moment.

A musing on time within space, the sculpture is skinned with delicate textures of leaves, earth and bark, which we cast on a single autumn day in Green Park
– a short walk from Clarges itself.
