smoke

Inspired by the smoke that swirls and lingers after you light a stick of incense or blow out a candle, a momentary, visual art experience. The collection is an interpretation of the beauty of a single line of smoke. The simplicity and complexity. Awakening your 4th-dimensional awareness.

Contemplating how to capture a moment in time, Bibi studied these shapes, ever-changing, quickly dissolving. Observing the lines, simple to complex weaving in and out of eachother. Sometimes cloudy and full, billowing, taking up space before seamlessly disappearing into nothing. A fleeting dance, always different, always mesmerising. Intrigued, Bibi, a sculptor at heart, set out to translate these dream-like visions through her favourite medium, stone. How could something so solid evoke movement and energy? The challenge excited her and inspired our new collection Smoke.
