Title: Edge of Chaos
Dimensions: 13.5 in L x 10.5 in W x 7.5 in H
Edge of Chaos is a small scale sculptural jewelry art piece representing a theme of order and chaos. The installation is composed of thirteen white bronze rings mounted on a base of raised and hammered nickel silver, with a Herkimer diamond as a focal point. Using a unique hot wax and water technique I created rings with repeated patterns of what I characterize as spines and tentacles. Each ring was sculpted in this manner and then cast using a 'lost wax' process. The work is utterly divorced of any conventional preciousness and has become a pure non-functional sculptural work. The concept converges along three branches of theoretical thought: scientific evidence of chaos and randomness in nature; mathematical principles of proportion; and social theory about the role of the individual in society.
