guest star friday no. 15...marc monzo

i first saw marc monzo's jewelry in the 2006 schmuck exhibition at the museum of art and design in new york city. recently i rediscovered his work while surfing. i really like how he uses color, form, and line to create minimal, sculptural, yet playful, compositions. he explores everyday things, observes how they relate to each other, and considers what our usual perceptions are. the resulting jewelry makes the wearer and viewer part of the experiment by quietly asking them to reconsider the norm.

there is a excellent article on marc's work on klimto02. also, be sure to visit his website. it's really cool, lots of pieces to look at...i had a hard time choosing which to show.

thanks for reading.
