Cages Become BoatsSold Out
7.8 x 4 cm
These earrings are a continuation of the Cages series the artist has been exploring for the past few years. These pieces explore the challenge of evoking an emotional response through minimal design. The concept is of something almost recognized, nostalgic, but elusive. They leave an open space for new stories to be told by the wearer. Sometimes our cages are, in reality, boats.
Patricia Tozer is a multidisciplinary artists, experimental silversmith and designer living on an island in the ocean of the coast of the west coast of Canada. Patricia works in close relationship with precious metals, stone, and other natural materials to create unique pieces to adorn wild, embodied spirits. Her work is informed by the belief that decorating one's body is a deeply rooted human instinct. For the artist, jewellery is an emotional, highly personal vehicle through which we can foster connections with others by revealing our hearts. In her hands, jewellery becomes the medium through which we discover our true selves and find our kindred spirits.
Patricia studied fine arts at McMaster University and earned her Master's degree at the University of Victoria in Victoria, B.C., Canada. She was fortunate to learn smithing from master metalsmith and multimedia artist, Tosca Terán in Toronto, Canada.
