Observatory

In my complete obsession with astronomy and the mystery of the night sky, I went to the local observatory every week for most of 1998. Each time the roof moved to accommodate the telescope's change in direction, I marveled at the pie slice of orbiting sky so much that I wanted to translate that feeling into small sculpture. Eventually, the result was this style of ring, whereby the dome rotates, revealing only a section of the stone with each turn. Instead of being inside peering out at the universe, the wearer peers inward to a universe within.

Chased Ring with Rotating Dome over Bezel
18k, 22k Gold, sterling, Koroit Opal
1’ long x 7/8” wide x 3/4” across diameter of dome
© 2007-2016, V. Lansford $900.
