Man Ray Swan, 2017
18kt Fairtrade gold and recycled silver ring
Limited edition no. 2 of 6
Quoting the simplistic symbolic imagery from Man Ray, we see Decker incorporate the Dada and Surrealist movements into expressing the figure of a swan. She incorporates that grace and serenity often associated with swans, manipulated through the metal. Decker is very understanding of the materiality as she incorporated contrasting metals, silver and gold, of which has different malleabilities, and combines them into a vividly coloured wearable sculpture. The resulting piece is of an overarching element of light that gleams across the wearer’s hand in a beautiful fashion.
