The namesake of the exotic plant prized for its vibrant, extravagant flowers, Bromeliad continues John's exploration of the intricate, repeating patterns and textures of nature.
18 ct. gold
Emulating the precision of nature, gold remains strong even in its most delicate form. The satin finish brings out the intensity of the colour.
Bromeliad is entirely handmade. Each component is cut with a 0.2 mm blade - precision is essential to achieve symmetrical balance.
Each component has its own unique shape but, linked together, the effect is harmonious and unified.
Working with gold
Gold is melted down and rolled into sheet form before being cut with the utmost precision to create the individual components.
The story of Bromeliad
Many core themes of John's work lie submerged in Bromeliad - whispers of artefacts from Ancient Egypt, floral patterns, the abdomen of dragonflies and other armoured creatures.
An experience of life
The articulated components of Bromeliad allow a fish-like shimmer. They come alive in response to your movement.
