Throughout Cambodia in homes, villages and craft centres, exists the age-old art of weaving – whether of silk textiles, patternedikatfabrics, woven cotton garments, bamboo baskets, reed mats or rattan furniture.
From theFORM collection, theRattan Vine Silver Ring pays tribute to this local artistic tradition and the rattan vine. Rattan is one of the most essential forest products in the Greater Mekong as various species preserve local livelihoods as export products and material for shelters.
Handmade from polished sterling silver, the Rattan Vine Ringis formed as a whirl which wraps around the finger.
Organic forms, fluid curves, natural movements and clean lines characterise the pieces in FORM. Inspired by the simplest of structural and dynamic profiles, and completely hand-worked by hammering, texturing and soldering, the FORM collection’s jewellery pieces are tiny sculptural works, timeless, austere and unadorned.
