Miracle Chips is a series of sculptural objects that defy our expectations about marble. Instead of seeming flat, static, and grounded, these wafers of stone appear flexible and light. By progressively curling the edges of each disc upward, Anastassiades creates a sense of movement. The last disc in the sequence has become a three-dimensional shape that invokes feelings of airiness and flight.
