Ring + Stand, 2016
18k Gold, Steel, Silver Brazing, Neodymium Magnets
2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm
Solid machined and fabricated, Hope no longer exists as a hollow dream, but is instead a current reality. A gold shank is fit inside, making the work truly wearable. The burden is meant to be felt. It is not a reliquary for the intangible.
The band sits on a stand of steel. Connected by magnets, the ring must be wrenched away from the solid mass that grounds it.
