[New Gallery] Emanuela Aureli - Sculptural Jewelry

Artist: Emanuela Aureli
Orchid Gallery:

	shard rings - 1994-96 
	sterling silver, brass, copper 
	hollow construction, various patinas 
	approx. 2" x 1 1/2" x 1/8" each 

My current work reflects my attraction to bold minimal shapes
and their relationship of color to metal. I work with silver,
brass and copper, manipulating the material with heat to achieve
a sensuous richness and satisfy a longing for touching.

Beyond traditional jewelry function, I make work that wants to
be touched and experienced in an active, physical relationship
with the body. Rather than passive, non-intruding jewelrywork,
my objects invite the wearer-and viewer alike-to interact with
the piece, to test and push pre-imposed limits and to dare.

Emanuela, I really like your work. Being an architect, I relate
to the architectonic quality in the linear forms. I bookmarked
your Web site.
