Boulder Opal is an exquisite natural gem, having a unique brilliance of colour found in no other precious stone. Many things about it are unique, including the strength and stability of the natural ironstone boulder which encases it. Prospecting in open cut mines is an arduous task in harsh conditions.
Boulder Opal is found only in the vast arid regions of the Australian outback. It is from this source that Bodo Muche Studio procures the rough stone which is then polished and shaped for inclusion with the bronze into a sculptural design. The Boulder stone in which the Opal is found blends well with the Walnut timber bases.
Gallery images in Bronze or Stainless Steel may illustrate examples of sculptures which include Opal. Each composition will differ according to the shape and character of each individual stone.
Opal is infinitely variable and is graded according to size, colour and brilliance.
Most sculpture bases are hand crafted in American Walnut with other sustainable timber species also available. Compositions in stone include Granite, Lapiz Lazuli and Fossil.
Handcrafted, the nature of the work is unique making custom options possible.
