Regmaglypt

280.00

A hand sculpted interpretation of a wearable meteorite formed in a steel based resin.

"I found a a stone I couldn't identify on a beach in Wales. Heavy and metallic looking, it's blackened surface looked it had blasted through the atmosphere. In being taught how to identify meteorites with a curator at Manchester Museum I was fascinated by the particular texture knows as regmaglypts. Translating as thumb prints, the meteorite surface looked as thought the impressions could have been made by human hands, with a force behind them so strong they could crush rocks." Jade

A lot of time and care has gone into this piece, to look after it please treat as a ceramic as it can break if dropped or knocked against a hard surface. Liquids and perfumes should be avoided. It can be cleaned if necessary with a soft clean, dry cloth.
