The Stack

For this piece I chose to concentrate my design on the Memphis style.  I decided to base my piece on glass works designed by Ettore Sottass. I liked the vibrant colour as well as the way each of the hollow shapes stack on top of each other to give a whole new form. Some of the hollow forms were random, which encouraged me to look at dissecting whole geometric hollow shapes such as a cube, cone and sphere into more abstract shapes.

I decided to make a pin which can be worn on a tie or lapel for both men and women.  The piece is made from sterling silver.
