The sphere seems to be precariously embedded, perhaps about to fall off the column at any moment. Balance is a theme that often appears in my work. "Embedded" is the first in a series I am working on that explores the interplay of the simple, perfect curve of the sphere form with crisp lines, angles and planes - all while playing with the theme of balance.

About the Artist:
Educated as an attorney, Marjin Wall took up woodturning over fifteen years ago following a life-changing workshop with Mike Hosaluk. She recently spent five months deepening and broadening her skills at the Escoulen school in Aiguines, France. Her work is frequently textured and painted, but for this project, “less is more” was the primary creative impulse.
