This project is about the celebration of the materials and manufacturing method at hand.
Maria is a unique ring that combines two different materials that play well together. In design, as in life, relationships are important. With that, a focus was given to connecting the materials in a pure way without the need of any outside influence. The acrylic piece flexes enough to be press fit into the plywood then return to its cut shape to hold the wooden ornament in place. Once complete, the acrylic is reminiscent of brilliant gemstones peeking through the wooden centerpiece.
NOTE: If you would like a particular color of Acrylic, please let me know.
