OXYDE: adjustable mens ring
Wide richly textured band
Dark silver patina
Behind the object:
The Oxyde rings collection is broadly inspired by the Wabi-sabi aesthetic: I catch myself admiring the language of rust, frayed edges, peeling, crackling and tarnish… Seeing beauty in the smallest, most imperceptible details.
Without trying to fit the rings into any conceptual category, I enjoy the randomness of textural “imperfections” and rough tactility: the raw and uneven surface formed by sporadic process of metalsmithing.
Pared down to its barest essence, Wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature and accepting its natural cycles. Simple, slow, and uncluttered. That, which reveres authenticity above all. Wabi-sabi resides in the inconspicuous and overlooked details, in the mirror and the hidden, in the tentative and ephemeral.
