'Auros' by Michael Spalt

'Why gold? Because gold does not require any explanation.'

"Auros" represents the elemental state of gold in this collection. Like a nugget found on the bottom of a clear mountain stream the gold has been formed and shaped by its journey down the mountain. I was always attracted by the glow gold creates when it reflects upon itself. The holes in the body create pockets and surfaces where the light reflects back and forth, openings and curves that indicate the softness of the metal that has had such a fascination for humans since the beginning."
