Marble Pillows Chiseled by Hakon Anton Fageras

Written by

 

Håkon Anton Fagerås is a Norwegian sculptor currently based in Pietrasanta, Italy. Using a pneumatic hammer and other carving tools, Fagerås shapes blocks of marble into busts, figures, and even pillows.

In this series of pillows sculpted in 2018, Fagerås manages to capture the subtle folds and wrinkles of an everyday pillow. Something that seems rather mundane, but when seen carved realistically from marble gives us pause.

Born in 1975, the artist attended the Oslo National Academy of Fine Art and the National College of Arts and Crafts. He apprenticed under Jan V. Sæther and has won numerous awards and grants and exhibited his art mostly in Oslo.
