Spiral staircase (2005)
Anröchter Limestone, 75 cm
I wanted to sculpt a staircase and first made a model of it out of Marlstone. I thought of the handy tree-trunk stairs that the people of the Dogon region use to lean against their granaries. But a sculpture has to be interesting from all sides and this was not.
Then I tried a spiral staircase, but I managed to retain the beautiful curves they produce above each step. Dogon-staircase
