"Aarusha"s stone came from a quarry in Tuscany, Italy, where Mel Fraser often travells to and chose materials for her work.
"Mel is a famous perfectionist, using purity of line and finish to play the loveliest games with light and shadow"
"A girl is born, added to earth,
but the light lightness lightly lands like angel’s wings,
white solid snow gleaming within,
full beating hearts wisping into feathers
into petals that shimmer and pulse. ... "
Poem by Philip Ward in response to Mel Fraser's sculptures
