a market intentionally confusing
These waters are so familiar, and simultaneously brand new. The stones for this piece were found in the chilly rushing waters at the confluence of the Madison & Jefferson Rivers where they become one, forming the Missouri River, the longest river in North America. How curious the way they erode, and polish in the flow. Who else through the ages idly and gently rubbed these stones before casting them back into the currant? How improbable to come upon any one stone at any particular moment.
These stones are bound by a basket of knotwork. At the back is a silver bead hand formed by Kyle Cunningham. This piece was designed to be worn at different lengths and is highly adjustable at the back.
The wooden hanging frame it is shown with installed in the gallery is available upon request.
