Moon Curve Ring by Mary Zayman

Home > Winners > #33563


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Moon Curve

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Ring

INSPIRATION:
When I enter my studio I may have a sketch from a napkin, a journal entry about an experience or a memory or dream fragment. The impetus for Moon was a dream about dancing. I am fascinated by the automatic painting techniques of artists of the Surrealist period, especially Max Ernst. I desire to be open to the emergence of the unconscious and poetic associations in the evolution of each piece, and my work as a whole.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
During the creation of Moon a dialogue developed between the piece and myself. How could I make it as compelling as the hand it would sit on? The human hand is miraculously complex and beautiful in its perfect union of form and function. If Moon were to hold its own it would need to be three dimensional, sculptural, and dynamic. . As the hand moves the ring should keep revealing something new and exciting. The hand and ring together should form a sculpture more exciting than the sum of its parts.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Moon Curve is designed to be a wearable sculpture which changes and flows each time the wearer moves. Its liveliness animates the person who wears it in a subtle yet unmistakable way.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was made in New York City between January of 2103 to April of 2013.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The techniques and processes employed in the production of this piece are, in order of execution, forging, casting, carving, wax build up, and finally stone setting. I chose to forge the ring as the first process In its construction because I like the directness of forming metal with a hammer. Following the molding and casting, I carved the metal to further develop the curves and forms of the design.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 20mm x Height 35mm x Depth 20mm

TAGS:
Jewelry, Ring, Gemstone ring, Forged ring, Lost wax modeling, moonstone, sculptural, art

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
My research was the study of forms and growth processes in nature.

CHALLENGE:
In this ring I wanted to create a form that was graceful and elegant yet also strong and dynamic. One only needs to look at nature to see countless examples of this balance of opposites. To find a balance of opposing forces is a challenge a well as the source of profound satisfaction for me.
