Viewing Stones

2019

A specially commissioned collection of silver jewelries made for the Smithsonian Cooper Hewitt Design Museum New York on the occasion of ‘’Nature  Design Triennial’’ 2019.

This one of kind jewelries collection incorporates a unique stone - Plastiglomerate, the newest type of rock on the face of the earth, a stone that contains mixtures of sedimentary grains, and other natural debris (e.g. shells, wood) that is held together by hardened molten plastic.
The collection is inspired by the Asian practice of appreciation of natural stones Suiseki (水石).

Suiseki are small naturally occurring or shaped rocks which are traditionally appreciated. They are similar to Chinese scholar's rocks and are used as a way to meditate about the constant changes in nature.
