Love is a (Medium) Thing Physical on The Standard Curdled Chain with Pearls
The Love is a Thing Physical is a love heart shaped locket held together through magnetic force. The locket can physically hold and protect something of value, sentimental or physical, or simply act as a vessel to later fill or empty. Inspired through a lover's changing forms.
The locket is formed on one side with a poem by Jago Rackham.
On the other side of the heart is an engraving based on a drawing of three figures circling one another by Lowena Hearn.
The Standard Curdled Chain 45cm (21") is comprised of curdled metal forms, interlinked with freshwater baroque pearls.
Love became a thing physical,
shaped and weighted like
a pebble from a stony beach
nestled in a warmhot cheek.
