PRODUCT: Chardon Baguette Brooch
MADE: France
SIZE: 1.5" high x 3.25" diameter
MATERIALS: Silicone and viscose mesh, rollover safety clasp fastener
DESIGNER: Tzuri Gueta
The technique of forcing silicone through textiles was patented by Tzuri Gueta in 2005. This process creates a glistening wearable sculpture that looks as if it was pulled from bottom of the ocean. Pushing boundaries between art and jewelry, begging to be touched, the silicone-injected lace tubing is sliced at the ends, imitating an urchin with soft spines and a safety pin backing. Handmade in Paris.
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
