Blob rings are made in silver and coloured plastics and incorporate symbolic micro-objects from contemporary life. Barbara works the magmatic and coloured plastics in an experimental way, recreating casual shapes around a silver ring. During the years Barbara Uderzo has created small "families" of Blob rings on specific themes, such as Blob rings food, with food material and kitchen tools; jewels with slices of cakes, small cups or teapots, small coffeepots or sweets, all dipped in cream or in a translucent glass.

The collection's name comes from the title of a science fiction cult movie of the Fifties, "The Blob", whose main character is a strawberry-like jelly which invades the Earth and swallows everything and everyone it finds on its way.
