Slab-built porcelain sculpture in Kondo’s iconic Monolith shape with silver mist surface finish. This piece is an early example of Kondo’s Monolith series, inspired by his visit to Orkney in Scotland, where he first encountered the Ring of Brodgar Neolithic stone circle. The blue/green colour recalls the weathered surfaces of the stones, and the moss and lichen that grow on them, while the silver mist evokes the haar mist coming in from the sea.
