Petra III Circular by Christopher Boots

PETRA (from the Greek Πέτρα, meaning stone) celebrates the subtleties and complexities of quartz. Quartz was highly revered by the ancients who believed that it was eternally frozen ice, miraculous because it was divinely forged. Prized for its mythic origin, its strength and its lustre, quartz has long been used to articulate sacred objects. Every PETRA embodies an individual stone biography, the resonance of formation made visible by individual colouration, translucency and veiny detail. PETRA amplifies the mythical and geological properties of quartz, merging fire and ice in stone.
