conjunction of worlds and dreams

conjunction of worlds and dreams


Everyone carries within him his somnambulist of whom he is the mesmerizer.

—Ritter, to Franz von Baader

made of: silver, copper, 24k, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: Without the ear wires, the earrings measure an inch and 1/8th long and 5/8ths of an inch wide. The handmade ear wire is about 3/4ths of an inch long and can be fastened securely .
process: The enameling process for making these earrings is labor-intensive. It involves laying layers of finely-ground glass onto the copper forms and firing them multiple times at very high temperatures in a kiln. Lots of protective gear involved at every step. Then I painstakingly gather, cut and arrange tiny fragments of text and imagery from many different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
