The making of a children’s slide of white Carrara marble

November 23, 2011 § Leave a comment

The city of Pontedera, which is in the province of Pisa, has a program whereby it commissions artists to produce artwork for the city park… artwork that’s meant to primarily serve as playground for the town’s children – and in so doing, Pontedera supports the arts, beautifies the urban landscape and makes a place where children can play… on art! I won the commission and over the course of several months, and with some help from my friends, I manufactured a children’s slide, in white Carrara marble in my studio in Pietrasanta. It’s really great to have made something that I know will be used daily… by children.

Here is a short movie… a little art documentary, that shows the process from beginning to wonderful laughter-filled end. If you are interested in seeing how one … well, two, blocks of rough Carrara marble end up being the thrill of many children then you might like it.
