The whole of nature is an endless demonstration of shape and form. It always surprises me when we, the artists, try to escape from this.
As Henry Moore said, «Pebbles and rocks are nature’s way of working stone. Smooth, sea-worn pebbles show the wearing away, rubbed treatment of stone and principle of asymmetry. Rocks show the hacked, hewn treatment of a stone, and have a jagged nervous block rhythm. Bones have a marvelous structural strength and hard tenseness of form, the subtle transition of one shape into the next, and great variety in section. Trees (tree trunks) show principles of growth and strength of joints… Shells show nature’s hard but hollow form and have the wonderful completeness of single shape at the same time.»
