Intro
As someone familiar with Jewish Mysticism can infer, the title “Sefiroth” refers to the Mystical Cabbala, and the symbolism repeated in all of the pieces - in this case, brooches - is the Tree of Life, a geometrical pattern of silver spheres bound together by paths of the same material.

Artist list

Ruudt Peters
Given names derived from the different Sefiroth, each of the Tree structures is adorned with other materials such as blown and formed glass, polyester, silk, and directly-photocopied imagery, which serve to give volume, color, form, or (print-) imagery to each of the small sculptures. Each brooch, therefore, connotes a starkly different interpretation of its namesake, an interpretation that one must see not as a direct reference to the Sefiroth in question, but as the artists’ metaphor for how each may relate to his personal experiences.
