Les Despoules (The Hens)
The’Mécanique’ series features a jump ring and an egg that can be drawn to variable lengths on a straight wire. The mobility of the egg lends it an uninterrupted independence away from the function of the piece, preserving its oval shape and bestowing it with beauty in its own right. There is a conscious effort on the part of the designer to give the piece two distinct characters – one that shows itself when the item stands alone and another when it is adorning a body. The simple mechanics of the piece stand in contrast to its sensual allure, highlighting once again the relationship between function and beauty.
