The matte finish of the fossilized series arises from sandblasting, and enhances the color and texture of the work by reducing glare. These pieces have an intentional and deliberate simplicity to them. They draw inspiration from the relics of our world, from objects in the archaeological record whether found or undiscovered. The sandblasted surface is lightly coated with a beeswax-based compound to enhance colors and patterns. The coating is renewable and convenient, more environmentally friendly, and safer to use than the alternative of hydrofluoric acid and its derivatives.
