Hollow Ring
Copper Sheet Metal
6cm x 6 ⅕cm x 1 ⅕cm

My work revolves around an intense fascination with nature. Utilizing traditional metalsmith techniques and materials, I explore colors, shapes, and textures in nature. This ring takes after the silhouette of a leaf. The outline of this piece was inspired by the spine of a leaf and the curve it makes. I imagine the curve around the pinky finger to be the stem of the leaf.
