‘Boxcast’ Art Ring



Please note, this is a one-of-a-kind ring made for our ARTring 2021 exhibition. ARTring is an annual celebration of bold design and craftmanship showcasing masterful creations from over 40 unique designers. The ARTring event is hosted in the gallery from November to January. Each ARTring comes with a dedicated Story Card featuring a sketch and quote from the designer.

Kelvin J. Birk’s work has become synonymous with disregard of what is traditionally considered precious. He crushes precious gemstones and then glues them back together, often in a free uncontrolled process. He lets chaos and chance lead his hand on his way of discovering something new

Kelvin says about his art ring:

“My box cast ring plays with the notion of value. It is not about the perfect stones but about the combination and harmony, different gemstones create when close together. What is more valuable? The perfect stone or my work and approach to these materials? The stones sit tightly next to each other within the treasure box. In this way, the colour of one stone reflects and shines through other stones, which is something one doesn’t get by setting stones in the traditional way.”
