Turned from English boxwood with 3 larger facets and 2 smaller, on an elm donut base. This piece is inspired by the Neolithic ‘Petrospheres’ (stone balls) that were found in Orkney and the North of Scotland. Although many have been found in open ground, ones were found at Skara Brae and at The Ness of Brodgar allowing the archaeologist to date them to the Neolithic period. Nobody knows why they were made (but does there have to be a reason). Like the original Neolithic stone balls this boxwood example is very tactile and fits perfectly in the hand. An intriguing piece. ‘Petrosphere’ 65mm∅
