Magma Ring, 2011
Electroformed silver on cast silver band ring
Edition of 10
Evocative of her visual abstractions and material manipulations, Lijn’s concept of the primal earth are finely tuned with the geological sciences. With these rings, they resemble the same characteristics of the highly volatile liquid magma that keeps the planet alive and constantly rotating. This same magma that reaches the surface from volcanic eruptions, maintains the cycle of life and death, are drawn into continuous momentum of renewal and vitality that Lijn echoes in her Magma and Fossil series.
