Clayton Keknek’s choice of dramatic black, grey and copper stone for this piece is genius.
He has carved black stripes into the stone mimicking the stripes of a snake or a reptile.
Transformation pieces can be complex.
There is a head, some flippers and perhaps some arms.
But in all this muddle, is a charming primitive creature making his way in this world.
The quirkiness factor of this piece is 10 out of 10.
Every collection benefits from a carving that is unconventional and unexpected.
Newton is that piece.
