My mind has been blown


Please allow me to introduce you to: The Metalepsis Project. from top, wood prints of e5, b2, and e3, a few pieces from the collection, and the collection map.

Paraphrasing is not my strong point, especially when it comes to jewelry of a fine art caliber, so I'll let the project speak for itself:

"The 2012 Metalepsis Projects collection is inspired by mid-century Scandinavian sensibilities in combining linear and curved geometries, and by the art and methodology of Sol Lewitt.
Often Lewitt’s works ... visually explore all methods of combining groups of modular geometries. Similarly, our collection comprises a series of cast bronze modular geometries that can be paired in an array of ways.
Each Metalepsis cast is un-finished, meaning that it retains the patina with which it emerges from the mold. This patina is wholly unique; even two castings of the same piece will have differing patinas. The patina will continue to develop slowly over time as the necklace encounters salt, oxygen, etc.
Necklaces are available in all combinations shown at left, though not all combinations have been photographed. 11" x 14" wood block prints are also available in all combinations shown."
