This silver bangle and pendant were made exclusively in collaboration with Willa Hilfreich and Van Gogh House.
Willa took wax impressions of the grain of our 200-year-old floorboards and manipulated and cast them in silver. The recorded texture is an accumulation of marks made by the people that have lived in the house. The habitudinal scuff of feet as they move from the bed, to the door, to the window define the marks on the floorboards that become important and are recorded in silver.
Each piece has been carefully cast from an original mould, and comes with an unique hand sewn bag.
