"Two people are dancing their free moving style. They are the loops on each side, and the centre is the source of the music."

Unusually, Tonderai has opted for a wide shallow form with a rolling continuous flow of movement. A perfect centrepiece for a long dining table, perhaps?

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is dense and has very few flaws, and is therefore the perfect medium for Tonderai's technically challenging style.

The pale green lines you can see in the photos are natural veins in the stone.
