“Stability is achieved when everything sits at its right position.”

Each ecosystem in nature moves towards harmony, it wants to find balance.

The lines of the sculpture are moving up and down, they are adjusting until they find balance, the still point in the middle.

This is a fantastic sculpture, great for a garden centrepiece, with interest from every angle. It is one of the highlights of this year’s collection.

Tonderai is one of Guruve’s most popular artists, and it’s easy to see why. It is almost inconceivable that an artist could create such complex and intricate work from a single piece of stone.

Springstone is the local name for a hard type of serpentine stone. It has a dense, even internal structure of small grains of rock with very few flaws, and is the perfect medium for Tonderai’s technically challenging style.
