L’inchiostro ormai da tempo inutilizzato, aveva formato cristalli che ostruivano la fuoriuscita di un segno fluido che rallegrasse la pagina almeno con il suo colore. The ink had been long unused: so it had formed crystals that blocked the escape of fluid a sign that cheered the page at least with its color.
Jānis Vilks’ jewellery is monumental, laconic in form and seeks to reveal the uniqueness of materials. All of these characteristics are present in his amber jewellery collection, which has preserved the natural form and texture of this gem born of resin. The artist has intervened only so much as to adapt the material to human anatomy. Vilks has also used mammoth tusk – another material with a similar place and manner of origin as amber and that likewise evokes the ancient world.
