The Escalator ring is part of the Egg Series. In this instance, the task was to make 2 rings from one egg shape. The picture you see here is of the ‘top’ of the egg. The whole egg has been split through the middle, creating 2 rings. The natural egg shape, so familiar to us all – symbolic of birth and eternity, it carries purely positive associations. It is simplistic, ergonomic, and reassuring, just a perfect shape. The Egg Series goes on to deconstruct the egg in a variety of ways, and is an on going project.
Shown here in sterling silver with raw white recesses.
