We wanted to kidnap a cloud, slice it into thin sheets like it’s done with blocks of marble.
After, we take the central slab with the most beautiful pattern.
To keep the cloud from escaping, we tied it on to weights, disguising them as light, golden legs.
Now, that the cloud is fixed to the ground forever we dressed her 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.
