Lac Lunae


Lac Lunae II (Sludge Pit Hole) 2017. Collection of National Glass Centre, Sunderland, UK.

A small section of cave wall transcribed to reveal patterns of a hidden landscape shaped over vast periods of time. Using the point of a solitaire diamond, a slow, laborious process of engraving mirrors the natural process of erosion and transmutes a place of solid darkness into light. Lac Lunae, or moonmilk, is a white mineral deposit found in caves. It was named by the Swiss naturalist Conrad Gesner (1516 – 1565) from the Medieval belief that the rays of celestial bodies condensed on Earth.
