After the initial creative impulse in the magma of a clayey mass begins prolonged work of constructive-destructive research in the studio.To prepare for a work means finding the marble block best adapted to it. Sferico digs into stone as into the belly of the Earth to unite matter and space. Calibrated geometry of liquid form drawn from the square marble block through the three orthogonal projections and continual regauging of the sketch,with the ever present risk of losing everything. The challenge is to find the surface that marks the border between the subjective self and the world, a place of the imaginary.

« We cut the surfaces to a parallelepipedon to allow me to reproduce the pounce of the drawing, one thus begins to cut the perimetric silhouette in the largest surface , then the second and finally we work on the third with a cardboard template, projecting it onto the block already cut » The rough form in full relief will be produced by hand using lump hammer and cold chisel, then one goes back to working with a diamond disc. One works down to about 1.5 cm from the final form after which it is my task to find the surface that marks the border between the subjective self and the world.
