Art Ring is an annual celebration of bold design and craftmanship showcasing masterful creations from over 40 unique designers. The Art Ring event is hosted in the gallery from November to January. Each Art Ring comes with a dedicated Story Card featuring a sketch and quote from the designer.
”Like the Japanese art of Kintsugi (where broken ceramics are mended using gold and Urushi lacquer ), I highlight the beauty in breakages and ruins. ‘Solis’, (Latin for sun) is a nod to the ancient belief that gold was the actual sun that had fallen from the sky. All life needs light to grow; this ring is a homage to illuminated thought. ” – Joy BC
