Silver teapot
Sorrel Van Allen

Sorrel Van Allen

Regular price $3,200.00
/

'Silver Birch Teapot’ is crafted from two interlocking forms, a functional inner cylinder with a soft satin finish embraced by an undulating, organic and highly textured outer layer. The unique surface pattern is inspired by the peeling bark of silver birch trees, carefully developed using handmade texturing punches, hammer marks, and piercing with a jeweler's saw. The handle is a unique construction of sustainably harvested birch bark sheets laminated over a silver and cherry wood core.

Jewellery SPOTLIGHT & NEW ARRIVALS

In SIMULACRA (within likenesses)– brooch

mother of pearl, vintage cutlery handles, sterling silver, acrylic, steel hand pierced and hand fabricated. 7x7x2cm. 2020- 2021 

This brooch is a flexible chainmaille structure of hand carved mother of pearl and vintage cutlery handles. I was initially compelled by the visual qualities of mother of pearl; the smooth, lustrous nacre being evocative of the Art Deco period as a signifier of technical innovation. Within its own structure, the mollusc nacre is an index of the tides, the waved patterning contributing to its remarkable protective strength. Even now, the mollusk produced nacre is being studied by chemists in effort to develop lightweight aeronautic materials and armour.

In the 1930’s and 40’s mother of pearl and other natural materials were simulated with bakelite, phenolic resins and other synthetics to create costume jewellery and popular functional items. I am fascinated by how these simulations have found their own value throughout the history of adornment by extending further into the general populations (sometimes covertly). The vintage cutlery handles allowed me to explore the subtleties of the two different materials. Optically similar, the mother of pearl is dense and compact, whereas the synthetic is almost stretchy, and endlessly durable. Together they are linked into a strong, collapsible network and brought to symmetry by the brooch mechanism. Armour for armour.
