Hortensia Anderson: WATER STONE, 1986

Surrounded by a field of white rocks roughly the same size and shape, the black basalt tsukubai murmurs. It is like glass, polished smooth as the water flowing over its irregular edges. I wonder if, before his first chisel, Noguchi had already heard the sound

early Spring ―
as it strikes the stones,
water finds its voice.
