    The Knuckle Dusters are a series of wooden rings based on residential construction of 2x4 stud framing. Many of the rings have more than one “band” and fit two or more fingers at once. The form of these structures leave room for the wearer’s expression to come through. There are some positions which are awkward but on the other hand, certain postures just work. 
    One ring frames the index and middle finger in a peace sign, another one dresses up the middle finger to elaborate on an obscene gesture. If you want to embody that but “just couldn’t” then try it on and let the frame show you how.
    Knuckle dusters may imply violence but mine amount to rough housing. Their strength is in symbolism. In my case, fighting to find a voice amongst so many louder ones within the framed walls of my family home. Putting energy into a prolonged fight is uncomfortable; and hopefully the fight is short and you can hang up your gloves, in this case knuckle dusters and begin the rebuilding.
    Off of the body the frames become something to play with, to arrange like building blocks, making space for the mind to manoeuvre.
