Guest Star #116...David Choi

I went to Velvet da Vinci while I was in San Francisco the other week to see the exhibition "Ferrous." It is a fantastic show and includes work by today's Guest Star, David Choi. I have long admired David's work and loved the chance to see it in person. The seemingly heavy steel brooches and bracelets are actually incredibly light-weight and the grand and puzzling look of the work is established through challenging and clever fabrication. Handling the work demystified the construction, allowed me to appreciate the pieces even more, and simply added to how impressive and beautiful the work is.

Thanks for reading.
