- Driftwood series -
The texture comes from a piece of driftwood that was found while walking along Lake Ontario. It is pressed into the clay. We don't overly refine the pieces - preferring to leave them more rustic looking, like a found object.
Our jewelry is made from a black iron oxide clay. It is left unglazed to let the natural texture and organic feel come through. By leaving the clay unglazed the matte finish absorbs the light and creates more shadows and depth. All of the clay shapes are hand-cut, and the brass findings are made in our studio.
Our jewelry is displayed on linen from our textile work. It is also dyed in our studio using iron oxides and tannins. It's a perfect compliment to the jewelry and a great way to use up all our small remnants so nothing is wasted.
