Intro
After Hunger Games… Stephen King’s The Dark Tower.
The costume designer Trish Summerville and her team, reached out to me and borrowed my “lucite” pieces for the actress Abbey Lee (Mad Max, Fury Road and Gods of Egypt star), female lead role of Tirana in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. Summerville was interested by my Collection entitled Cristalline composed of sculptural one-of-a-kind rings made of polycarbonate, which explores the theme of transparency in a literal and figurative sense. With excellent resistance to impact and shock, this robust material is mainly used as anti-bullet ultimate protection, while having a fragile appearance, and a certain delicacy due to its clarity.




Emphasizing these contrasting aspects, these sculptural rings offer a balance between the hardness of this industrial material and sweetness presented by organic forms. In fact, this Collection fits perfectly with the essence of the magnificent Tirana as she has an appearance of being fragile, delicate, full of light yet she is extremely strong, and powerful!




As soon as I received the invitation to collaborate, I read more about this character and created a ring especially for her, inspired by her personality, and in the spirit of my Cristalline Collection. That Collection (2013) was first exhibited at the Aaron Faber Gallery in New York; during my solo show: The Power of the Ring at Gallery Fur Schmuck Meister und Margarita in Frankfurt, Germany; and at Noel Guyomarc’h Gallery, Montreal, Canada.
