After making Nocturnal Stone I developed making circular turning sculptures. These naturally seem to be like pebbles. Although the mathematics of a pebble is quite different. Pebbles are completely irregular even if the one you find on the beach looks round. They are symmetrical as potatoes. My “pebbles” have a regular circumference then a very carefully drawn design keeping a consistent drawn line that may bow out elliptically over the upper surface. We have a platonic ideal of a pebble as opposed to the naturally formed shape. Many are placed on bearings that allow them to spin and be sat upon.
