This is a superb piece. The relationship between the smoothly polished interior and rough, seemingly naturally occurring rock formation on the exterior heightens the viewers appreciation of both process and material. I love the warmer ochre coloration of the polished agate- it is luminescent- but I'm unsure if the shift in hue comes through the physical manipulation, or if this was a calculated choice in design. The scale of the piece isn't indicated, but I imagine it to be relatively small, creating a personal object of contemplation and adoration. The column and steps are temple like as the title of the work implies. I like the aesthetic choice in creating a wooden base for the sculpture. It adds another warm element, and the thickness of the wood nicely echoes the proportion of the carved steps. I also think it visually lifts the object as it creates a visual transition to the ground platform.
