Gogotte

Gogotte Freeform 250mm

£242.00 GBP

A wonderful example of the Gogotte measuring 250mm created by natural elements combined with time, superheated water and enormous pressures extruding through crevices of very fine white silicate, these mineral deposits also produce calcium carbonate and quartz in the surrounding limestone deposits. These waters are heavily saturated with calcium carbonate which eventually over time transcend to stone, emulating the movements of underwater pools beneath the earth's surface which help form these remarkable Gogotte free forms that have inspired and equally intrigued many cultures from royalty, intellects, natives and poets over the passing centuries

Ancient Chinese texts refer to nature concerning a life force Qi, a belief that absorbed into the formal philosophies of Daoism and Confucianism, permeating the Chinese intellectual psyche. The Song Dynasty (960-1279), the elite and scholarly classes brought natural rock forms, into a domestic context. A golden period for the arts where nature-inspired philosophy, poetry, calligraphy and painting. Rocks and roots continue to be collected today, the most prized examples having been passed down over many generations.
