Ariel s.f. #objectdheartwithart
Homage to the Queen of the Sea. “It doesn't matter whose comb it is; what's important is leaving!”
The breath of the ocean carved in a drop.
It is a bubble of oxygen, one of those that arise from the depths of the sea to fluctuate in the ether. A little and elegant stratagem to bring the Queen that lives inside each woman back to the surface. In a perfect balance between poetry and mastery, highly-skilled craftsmanship and new technologies, Ariel is made by an army of Plexiglas masters and 3D nerds.
Five different layers of PMMA are inlaid on top of each other recreating the effect of an explosion, and the gluing is so perfect that it almost seems magic. After being polymerized, the block undergoes a 3D carving process and each section is polished until it becomes crystal clear. It takes a fruitful 33 hours of gestation to give birth to Ariel. The balancing stone in the latch is made of die-cast zink-alloy and the internal purse of silk satin.
Each Ariel is numbered and delivered in a precious Plexiglas case.
Ariel is locally made of 100% recyclable material and through considered process and has been designed to be disassembled in minutes! #sustainablefuture
