Pass the Butter Please is a playful ring of sterling silver, copper and resin.  It features lobster, lime and lettuce for your dinner ring; 5.3 cm L x 5.5 cm W x 2.5 cm H and made in 2021.   Size 7  To be worn with love and care.

Lobster counterpoints:
Gastronomic indulgence vs. dining impracticality; iconic exoticism vs. predictable regionality; delightful taste vs. malingering odour.

These extremes of effect can characterize its impact as camp culinary theatre embodied in a single object. However in its original, full-sized, biodegradable form, the lobster is arguably not the wisest choice for a wearable object.

These rings present our subject in a much more practical and durable form—while still provoking (if only vicariously) the same complexly diverse reactions, from wearer and viewer alike.
