We wanted to kidnap a cloud, slice it into thin sheets like it’s done with blocks of marble.
After we chose the central slice with the most beautiful shape.
To keep the cloud from escaping, we fastened her to weights, disguising them as light and golden legs.
Now, that the cloud is tied to the ground forever we dressed her up in the colour of orange onyx which rested for millennia in the depth of heavy mountains.
The cloud has become a table and nobody will ever unmask it.
