Clythia

Sophia Vari
Clytia, 2006
Pau Amarelo wood from Brazil and 18 kt yellow gold bracelet
Edition of 8 plus 1 AP
Signed and numbered

Vari approaches wearable art in precisely the same manner and strength as her abstract sculptures, collages and paintings. Her thorough exploration of bold geometric forms, the examination of volume, painterly curves and lines result in the composition both peaceful and elegant but also captures a harmonious theatrical tension.

Only the highest quality materials from marble to bronze are used in Vari’s large-scale work. Similarly, her wearable art, the pieces combine the most refined materials such as gold, silver, wood, ebony, leather, root emerald, rock crystal and sapphire among others. Each piece of jewellery is a part of a limited edition or is a unique work, incised with the artist’s signature “Vari” and numbered like her sculptural works. Of her methods, she reveals:

 It can take a week, a month or even more to realise a piece. I work until I know that I can’t take away or add anything more.”
