The original stone was found in a cove north of Emplisi beach, near Fiscardo in Cephalonia, Greece in September 1997.
‘I remember as a teenager, I used to spend hours walking along the beach, searching for the perfectly round pebble. Every holiday, every journey to another place became a project, an obsession to find the ultimate accidental formation. Sometimes, I would get excited when I spotted a pebble half-buried in the sand and I would pray that, when I picked it up, there would be nothing distorting its shape. Only now do I look at this big collection of stones and see how beautifully different they are.’
