Title of Piece #4: Eons
Media: Travertine
Dimensions: 32"H x 15"W x 7"D
Retail Price: $1,150 + tax

Artist’s Statement: Make sure to look at both sides of this piece as the back side is a negative image of the front side. I find the intricate contrast in the rich, warm colors on this piece of marble to be quite beautiful. The shadows created by the contrasting levels are striking.

 

Artist’s Bio: Syd Harris was a professional engineer for 40 years and is a long time North County resident that sculpts in stone, stainless steel, mild steel, and copper. The works in metal are designed for outdoor installations but work equally well indoors. His alabaster and Carrara marble pieces are complex and created in a wide color range. His work shows a degree of complexity and attention to detail and should be viewed from various vantage points.
