Much inspired by the Japanese calligraphy, Rolling Waves in Moonlight II expresses that same fluidity and form through the twists and careful bends of the gold, portrayed in a wearable sculptural piece. There is a clear awareness of the brightness and colour of the gold material, as Decker beautifully manipulates the light bouncing off the metal from a three dimensional perspective. This brooch is truly one of her remarkable works.
