This Piece of rutilated quartz had the characteristic of magnifying anything underneath it. Paired with the abalone in this leaf I thought it had a nice effect. As Im working Im trying to envision ways future artist may use these RJM pieces but I also like to think about the artist or designer who made the original I'm working from. I wonder if they ever considered that there piece would be chopped up to become something new. I like to think they would be surprised by this use.
