100 Ringe

 

A series of rings arose out of a sequence of experiments. With a hand driven tabletop casting machine I produced most of these rings. Small found objects were starting points for the forms. Most of them were made out of plastic. Partly only the print of the found item generates the form partly the found object is cast together with the ring. In the second case the two ends of one stripe of wax enclose the found object or grow out of it. Traces of the working process stay visible. The little sprue serves as a pedestal to display the finished ring. To wear a ring this pedestal is cut off. The oxides stay on the ring until the wearer uses them up with the time. 

I carried on the idea of the imprint. I allowed to develop swellings out of a metal strip. Through the working process arose embossed shapes. I wanted to leave the marks from the labour. They are part of the process. The final shapes flatter the hand and invoke connotations.
