Object Detail


Description
Neckpiece. This chain and pendant literally began its existence as a steel chain layered with cotton bandages and clay slurry and coated in concrete (in contradiction to a more traditional gold or silver leaf coating) to create the impression of a heavy, solid neck piece which is deceivingly light. The pendant is created with burnt out polystyrene and various industrial materials and scattered with crushed glass and gold leaf. While the artist employs industrial materials generally used in a precise manner for large, reliable structures, visually the work gives off the impression of being imperfect and natural – referencing the artists intrigue with the shell shape.
