Slate is a homogenous metamorphic rock composed of clay and volcanic ash. Despite the composition, it’s a very durable stone specimen, that is widely used in commercial areas where needs to take a beating. Its most significant virtue however that when the top surface starts to wear out, the stone shows the same consistency. To carve this Michael Jackson stone plaque I used a dentist’s drill, that converted into a carving machine. The edges are antiquated with mallet and chisel. The idea is just a tribute to Jacko’s art, most significantly the moonwalk, that I tried to represent in this small size original work. I also carved a coaster set from the same stone.
