Noguchi’s Playground Series
This series is inspired by Isamu Noguchi’s playground work, in particular his 1986 sculpture, Slide Mantra. His lyrical sculpture functions as a slide with steps winding up the back which descend into a beautiful spiral. It truly embodies his belief that play can lead to a new appreciation of sculpture.
The Slide Bangle explores spiraling shells and lily spathe forms. The recess areas have a beautiful patina that varies from blue to black. I see jewelry as sculpture and this piece stands on its own when off the wrist. It is a bold and mysterious bangle that invites you to explore every angle.
