Holding Stone


Edition of 35 + 5AP

“To hold a stone hot from the sun or wet and cool only moments ago lifted from the river bed, to feel its smoothness, the details of its surface, its weight, is to be in touch , even for a brief moment, with matter.” – Liliane Lijn 

This piece originates from past research into shapes and materials conducted by Lijn during the mid-1980s. Holding Stone has been produced as a limited edition in an industrial foundry that has operated for more than one hundred years in Piraeus (Greece), becoming a historical landmark of the neighborhood.
