Charcoal, larch wood, Baltic amber, synthetic material, polyamber casting resin, oxidized sterling silver
Born from her Same Origin collection, artist Susanne Elstner imagines two diverse materials grown from the same stalk together once again in a palpable composition of adornment. Smooth, translucent pieces of amber are delicately pieced together to bear their organic delectability. Its elongated form, immersed in the hushed tones of umber and marigold, flow through a body of milky black charcoal. Near reminiscent of a stream of lava gushing through the ashen rocks and sand in the aftermath of a volcanic eruption. The capricious surfaces of the charcoal admiringly handle the touch of the maker as their jarring edges harness the character of its origin, yet have masterfully been finished to remain composed against wear. With a slight pinch of the needles, they are released from their silver clasps for simple fitting. Elstner creates a dynamic work prepared to stir our curiosity and fascination.
