Organic and geological time collapse in "Study with Grapes Necklace". Organic time - the time it takes to grow a plant from seed - is captured by the crystalline architecture of the grapes, which only ripen in the third spring.
Time-Crystal gestures towards a theory of time. The crystalline and the chronological, the timeless and the temporary collapse and intertwine.
In this collection The Victorian era and the non-human future exist at once. Time stands still, evolves, freezes and returns.
The coating is similar to a gemstone and is formed when ultra thin laters of metal oxides and quartz crystal are vacuum deposited on glass. Fascinated by this high-tech medium, with its unique light reflecting properties, Venice developed her own glass casting technique, calling it Space Glass for its optical illusions and shimmering qualities that resemble the cosmic river of the Milky Way.
Each piece of space glass is lovingly hand made by Venice, in her Sydney glass studio.
Trained at Central Saint Martins in London and College of Fine Arts in Sydney, designer Venice Rish explores themes of scientific discovery and unknown worlds, wide open spaces and indigenous knowledge systems. Since the label began in 2010, Venice has proven to be a unique voice that invites the wearer to bring a little piece of the natural and cosmic worlds into their everyday. Hand crafting pieces in silver, gold, gemstones and her signature Space Glass, Venice designs have gained international recognition and can be found in stores across Australia, Europe and Japan.
