The humanization of the mathematics of shapes became a hallmark of FeBland's work. Paul Mocsanyi, former director of the New School Art Center at the New School for Social Research in New York City has dubbed her “the poet of geometry.” Geometry is the central focus in the work of Harriet FeBland. However her approach was not strictly analytical--rather she explored the mystery and beauty of geometric forms and shapes.

'Moon Song', made of two refined marble components, present the calm, mystical presence of a monolith, especially when compared with her other, more visually active and colorful works. The elongated pyramid-like form of the gray Italian marble base serves to elevate the top element to eye-level, bringing the sculpture to an intimate human scale. The high-polish, black Belgian marble crowing piece draws the viewer’s gaze along a one-point perspective inward to a set of square planes, each made through the use of negative space, and beyond into the void.
