ARC is a concept, not a product: it is, at its core, a body of work that seeks to encourage mindfulness and individual creative expression. From jewelry to home objects, it is a collection that explores and experiments with wearable and functional sculpture. An arc is simultaneously a shape and a concept; similarly, ARC objects seek to be both literal and figurative. It is the continuation of my thesis project at Parsons.
The pieces are unique in their boldness, in their simplicity, in
their abstraction. They push the boundaries of wearable and usable sculpture.
ARC is not inspired by trends; in fact, the designs are born from quite the opposite starting point. ARC is inspired by timeless beauty; colors, shapes, textures found in nature; the surreal; the abstract; and asymmetry that feels as balanced as symmetry.
