Escape III, ring

I'm constantly experimenting with how light and air interact with the shapes I create in metal. Escape is part of a new series of rings inspired by the structural principles of Gothic architecture in which the skeletal support is decoratively displayed rather than hidden behind facades. 

In these rings the form and function are one. Their strength and scale lie in the overall shapes of the rings, yet their openness and lightness lies in the carefully chosen pierced areas. The resulting cells of the fused wires alternate between areas for embellishment and windows into the internal color.
