Product Description

MORE ABOUT SILVER BOX
“SUMMITS”

BOX REPRESENTS THREE SNOW SUMMITS

The object represents three mountaintops. Some mountain faces have silver highlights, other golden highlights, by the brightness effect. Somes faces still white.

MATERIAL HAD BEEN WORKED
TO MAKE THIS PHENOMENON OF REFLECTS

This effect of silver reflections is obtained by not covering some parts with enamel. The idea of this object comes from the ancient technique of the champlevé, which consists in digging into the metal to depose powder enamel. After technical research, we were able to achieve a similar effect.

IT IS A OBJECT
FROM THE EMERSON ISLANDS COLLECTION

Emerson Islands are utopian Islands bearing the writer’s name
American nineteenth century, Ralph Waldo Emerson. On this archipelago imaginary Islands, residents share his vision of a spiritual connection between men and nature.
This object represents the spiritual connection felt by some men
to mountain peaks.
Some are legendary peaks like mont Fuji ou Sainte-Victoire mountain of Cézanne.
