Marble, karaoke

14 x 10 x 1.5 in

The slab of scrap marble was used as the sign-up sheet for a morning karaoke session.  I went back over people's words with a hammer and chisel to engrave them in their original handwriting.  Marble has been historically used for very serious and elevated monuments and sculptures.  This work brings a silly and ephemeral list closer to that level and also relaxes the seriousness of the material.
